The Commonwealth Club may be my new favorite place to get intellectual stimulation... This lecture was interesting and fun. Didn't know Larry Flynt was worth watching.

Description

Larry Flynt, Publisher; Activist; Co-author, _One Nation Under Sex _

David Eisenbach, Ph.D., Professor of American History, Columbia University; Co-author, One Nation Under Sex

In conversation with Phil Bronstein, Editor at Large, Hearst Newspapers

Legendary Hustler publisher Flynt is seen as a pro-sexuality trailblazer to some folks, but for others he’s the source for sex scandal and smut. Yet for three decades, Flynt has been a symbol of sexual freedom, crusading for First Amendment rights and against political hypocrisy. His landmark Supreme Court case, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, is taught in law schools. Now, Flynt and Columbia historian Eisenbach have teamed up to tackle America’s sexual mores past and present, as well as the evolving role of the press as truth-seeking opinion-shapers. Join us as the fearless Flynt takes a look at freedom of expression, sexual politics and privacy.
