Title: FLASHPOINTS: EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE HUB

Abstract: Beginning in late 2021 and continuing through 2023, PEN America and the American Historical Association (AHA) are co-hosting Flashpoints: Free Speech in American History, Culture and Society. This series presents the fascinating and complex history of free speech in American democracy to public audiences in cities across the country. The historical flashpoints highlight pivotal moments in which artists, activists, writers, filmmakers, and intellectuals tested the limits of free speech, challenging the public to redefine “freedom” and realize it anew for populations and causes that were at risk of having their liberties denied. This educational resource hub features videos, primary sources and further resources culled from the PEN America Digital Archive. In 2023 downloadable discussion guides tailored for middle school and high school educators will be included.
