UNC celebrated its second annual First Amendment Day yesterday, and as predicted, it was an absolute smasheroo. The day began with the weather exercising its freedom of expression with sheets of rain, but only a few of the events were shifted inside before the drizzling tapered off.
The events kicked off with a planting of a symbolic Liberty Tree next to Carroll Hall on UNC’s main campus and continued throughout the day. With performances by a cappella groups, documentary screenings, talks from various visitors, and panels of visitors from organizations such as FIRE (the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education), there was a something for everyone to enjoy. Take a look at some of the photos highlighting the day!
