On Wednesday April 13th at 6:30 pm, students at St. Petersburg College gathered to watch the documentary “Can We Take A Joke?” and enjoyed fresh popcorn. There were no issues with the screening and we had no interference. We wanted to make sure students were informed on the importance of free speech on college campuses.
Our campus seems to support the diversity of opinions, even ones that are not popular. Lets hope this continues. The discussion after the movie was productive, we feel confident that clarification and a clear point of the rights to free speech were made. Most students agreed that there has become a politically correct culture on campus.
Overall, this event was a great success and we look forward to continuing to promote free speech on our campus.
