City Club of Cleveland and Freedom of Speech since 1912

Dan Moulthrop, CEO of the City Club of Cleveland, spoke at the Rotary Club of Cleveland meeting on August 10, 2017 at Windows on the River.  Dan told how freedom of speech can be messy and hard.

The City Club started in 1912 and in 1915 was challenged when a scheduled German speaker was protested against after the sinking of the Lusitania.

He mentioned issues with Socialist speakers and controversial people such as George Wallace in the 1960’s.
