First Five Now: The Role of Free Speech in Bridging the Blue and Red Divide
December 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm ESTFree
Philippa P.B. Hughes, a social sculptor and cultural strategist, talks about her work of bringing people together with differing political views to connect with meaningful, humanizing dialogue.
Hughes is the founder of Blueberries & Cherries, a dinner club designed to bring Democrats and Republicans into a room to discuss their beliefs in hopes of better understanding each other.
Hughes expanded her events across the country into Looking for America, which hosts art events and conversations in which people discuss what it means to be American.
She is founder of CuriosityConnects.us and has designed and produced hundreds of creative activations since 2017 for people to engage with art and with one another in unconventional and meaningful ways.
This program will premiere Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. Eastern on our YouTube channel.
First Five Now is a Freedom Forum conversation that explores topical issues and features current newsmakers who are using the five freedoms of the First Amendment to guide their work.
