Listen as Chicagoans exercise their First Amendment rights and relive the days of soapbox oratory, public debates and loud heckling that immortalized Washington Square Park. An open mic and musical entertainment completed the afternoon’s participatory pleasures, a portion of which are included on this recording.

Recorded Saturday, July 26, 2008 at The Newberry Library.
