Talking Heads: The San Diego Free Speech Fight
Lesson Plan and DVD
In 1912 downtown San Diego streets became off-limits to unionists wishing to exercise free speech rights. Through municipal ordinance and vigilante violence, “order” was maintained, but at a high cost. Inspiration for founding the ACLU, the San Diego Free Speech Fight was a mostly forgotten event — until now. Includes a 28-minute video on DVD.
Grades: High school and up
Cost of lesson plan plus DVD: $10
