04/14/15: Free Speech; History Of The Yamasee Indians; March For Babies Event

Some call free speech the linchpin of a free society and one of America’s most deeply held values. We look at the First Amendment's role in our society, as well as a discussion on the topic taking place at UNF Tuesday night, with Earl Coggins, president of the First Coast Free Thought Society, and David Schwam-Baird, UNF professor of political science.

Dr. Denise Bossy, UNF associate professor of history, joins us to discuss the historical and cultural impact of the Yamasee War of 1715.

And we preview the Northeast Florida Chapter of the March of Dimes' "March for Babies" event this weekend with Andrew Keen, Chief Administrative Officer with Citi in Jacksonville and March of Dimes Board Member.
