Banned Books Week Day #3

Banned Books Week is the perfect time to learn and embrace the First Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The Online University has a load of information to help you know and understand The First Amendment - they use layperson terms.*

Picture of the Bill of Rights made available by the National Archives and Records Administration through Wikipedia.

*This paragraph was amended on August 15 2012 in response to Jennifer Jenkins very kindly pointing out a broken link and suggesting another for guidance - thank you!
