First Amendment law expert Stephen D. Solomon talks about his new book, “Revolutionary Dissent: How the Founding Generation Created the Freedom of Speech.”

In the book, Solomon shares the stories of how dissenters like Paul Revere, Alexander McDougall, Ebenezer McIntosh and Patrick Henry used political theater, protests and oratory to create the American idea of the liberty of thought.

Solomon is a New York University professor and associate director of the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

Newseum Institute Chief Operating Officer Gene Policinski will moderate the discussion.

A book signing will follow the program.

Inside Media programs are made possible with generous support from Kate Headline in honor of her husband Bill Headline, CNN Washington bureau chief from 1983 to 1996.
