Our liberties, enshrined in the Bill of Rights, are almost 230 years old. How well do they still serve us today?


A Zoom conversation on Tuesday, Sept. 14, highlighted the vital importance of the Bill of Rights in a celebration of Constitution Week. 


The program, “America’s Amendments,” was sponsored by the Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University. Free Speech Center Director Ken Paulson and Belmont University Law School Professor David L. Hudson Jr. will discuss Hudson’s book, The Bill of Rights: The First Ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.


“Professor Hudson’s readable, accessible book is designed for students and any American who wants a working understanding of our fundamental freedoms,” Paulson said.


The book is published by the Free Speech Center’s First Amendment Press. Anyone joining the Zoom conversation on Sept. 14 will receive a free e-book edition of Hudson’s book.
