College Campuses turned Battlegrounds: Title IV & Free Speech
College campuses have been a hot spot for change and activism for generations, looking back at the Civil Rights protests at the University of Cincinnati in 1964, or Vietnam War protests at Kent State University which lead to the tragic death of student Jeffrey Miller. But on this premiere episode of Fighting Words, host Robby Suave takes a deep look at the more recent outcries happening around college campuses in America. Students have been protesting guest speakers or professors because of their work or comments they have made, frequently resulting in violence. This leads Robbie to ask, how can the epicenters of America’s education that are tasked with challenging students, ironically have such a problem with free speech? Robby also takes a look at Title IV on colleges, and both the good and bad that it does for students.
