Silenced Perspectives: The Unequal Effects of Censorship Across Communities

Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right. Free Speech is protected in our constitution. Yet, censorship runs rampant – particularly with the advent of social media and the increasing accessibility of expression online. This series has covered various topics ripe for censorship, including sexual expression and freedom. However, content is not the only victim of censorship, as it often affects the speakers and creators of said content differently. BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals often report higher rates of censorship. This month, we’re discussing inequity in censorship practices. Jamila Aisha, Advocate & Educator, will join Mandy Salley to discuss discrimination in censorship. This is a long overdue conversation that you don’t want to miss.
