FREE SPEECH 10: Why aren't we talking about the 14th Amendment?

Professor Tanya Hernández

Tanya Hernández, Professor of Law at Fordham University, talks to Think About It about the necessity of discussing the First Amendment and the Fourteenth in the same breath, how an understanding of freedom of expression in the First is incomplete without raising the guarantee of equality in the Fourteenth, and the fallacious soapbox theory of free speech. Hernández is Professor of Law at Fordham University. Her work addresses issues of discrimination, Latin American and U.S. law, critical race theory, and the science of implicit bias. She is the author of Multiracials and Civil Rights: Mixed-Race Stories of Discrimination.
