Martz, Carlton, Ed.
Bill of Rights in Action, v5 n2 Win 1988
This theme issue on the freedom of assembly includes three sections: (1) "World History: Wat Tyler's Rebellion," a glimpse into the English past that provides a valuable perspective for understanding the turbulent origins of the right of U.S. citizens to assemble; (2) "U.S. History: William Lloyd Garrison and the Boston Mob," an account of a northern abolitionist's struggle to establish his right to free speech and his subsequent near lynching; and (3) "U.S. Government: The Lunch Counter Sit-Ins," the story of the civil rights protests in Greensboro, North Carolina. Each section includes a historical essay on the topic area, questions for discussion and writing, a short reference list, and selected activities that mimic the historical events of that section.
