Social Activism: Freedom of the Press from Colonial Times to Today
Dr. Angelo Angelis
The trial of Peter Zenger in 1734 involved a complex interplay of politics, law, and early understandings of essential rights. This talk will examine the origins, conduct, and outcomes of the trial and its connection to American understandings of freedom of the press.
