Rights in Conflict; A Report on the Annual Conference of the National Coalition Against Censorship (2nd, New York City, February 16, 1977).
Zachowski, Matt, Ed.; Rothaus, Elyse, Ed.
This report details the proceedings of the second annual conference of the National Coalition Against Censorship, which was held in New York City on 16 February 1977. Among the events covered is a panel discussion of possible limitations on free speech, conducted by four experts in the field of communicatons (Peggy Charren, president of Action for Children's Television; Nat Hentoff, "Village Voice" columnist; John O'Connor, "New York Times" television critic; and Harriet Pilpel, communications lawyer). The results of group discussions which followed are summarized, as are two other sessions: the purpose and role of the National Coalition Against Censorship and arguments for regulation of "reverse censorship," a covert form of sex, race, and ethnic stereotyping. Finally, the outcome of a plenary discussion is described and a list of conference participants is given. (KS)
