Roger K. Newman

Sex, Censorship, and the Internet

Joseph L. Price

The Super Bowl as Center of American Pilgrimage

Roger K. Newman, a noted authority on civil liberties and censorship, will present his lecture “Sex, Censorship and the Internet”. The lecture deals with the timely topic of what constitutes free speech and how that applies to the Internet, which is viewed as perhaps the last place to allow total freedom of expression. The “sex” in the title of Newman’s lecture is meant to be more than merely provocative.

“It is safe to say that without sex, either as the subject or behind it, there would be a very, very small part of the censorship or attempted censorship there is now or indeed has ever been,” he says.

Also, Mr. Newman is the author of Hugo Black: A Biography about Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.
