The Free Thought Movement in U.S. History

This week’s program takes a look at the history of the Free Thought movement in the U-S, from its roots in the time of independence to its resurgence during the post-Civil War years. The struggle between freethinkers and conservative religious forces played out on several fronts, including efforts to restrict what publications could be sent through the U-S mail. Among the historical figures examined in the program are the Free Thought publisher D.M. Bennett and the ‘anti-vice crusader’ Anthony Comstock, who lobbied for laws banning the mailing of ‘obscene’ materials.

The guests are Roderick Bradford, author and filmmaker, and Tom Flynn, editor of Free Inquiry magazine. The program includes excerpts from the documentary film, “American Freethought,” produced by Bradford and Flynn. More information on the documentary series can be found at www.americanfreethought.tv

Hosts: Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips
Producer: Anthony Fest

Note: This is a rebroadcast of a previously-aired Project Censored Show.
