|When I was a sophomore that was when the Speaker Ban Law was kind of controversial and there were a lot of protests at UNC.
||00:00:00.000 - 00:00:13.219
|I don’t think we had that many protests at NC State but we did pass legislation about it in student government,
||00:00:13.219 - 00:00:20.660
|basically underwriting that academic freedom should be preserved, that it’s not a problem to have any speaker come on a campus
||00:00:20.660 - 00:00:31.468
|and that we’re adults and we could tell the difference between truth and not truth. So we passed one bill that encouraged students–.
||00:00:31.468 - 00:00:39.845
|Since they were banned to hear a speaker at either UNC or NC State, he was going to speak at Duke.
||00:00:39.845 - 00:00:47.122
|I mean they’re not a public institution and they didn’t have to worry about what the legislature said, so they invited this speaker
||00:00:47.122 - 00:00:54.292
|and it was kind of thumbing your nose, I think, at the Consolidated University.
||00:00:54.292 - 00:00:58.731
|So we suggested students should go to Duke to hear it, and then we also passed a resolution about affirming academic freedom.
||00:00:58.731 - 00:01:08.004
|But that was about the extent of it. I mean what else could you say?
||00:01:08.004 - 00:01:13.378
