Donna A. Demac discusses censorship and her book "Liberty Denied"

BROADCAST: Jun. 16, 1988 | DURATION: 00:50:55


In her book, “Liberty Denied: The Current Rise of Censorship in America,” Donna Demac points out that we, as a society, are not as free as we think we are. Demac can’t understand why anyone would want to keep people from reading great pieces of literature. While some groups called certain books anti-Christian, Demac said no one has ever died from reading a four-letter word.
