Junior Forum 2018: Should Celebrities Speak Out?

Posted on December 14th, 2018 by Allendale Columbia School

Should celebrities speak out on political issues?

Jessica Sherin (as Barbra Streisand), Gifford Campbell (as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones), Matt Duver (as Penguins coach Mike Sullivan), and Riley Leibeck (as Fox News’ Laura Ingraham) discussed the topic at AC Junior Forum Thursday, December 13th, with moderator Evelyn Van Arsdale.

They addressed whether athletes should be allowed to kneel during the national anthem, First Amendment freedom of speech rights, who is really “qualified” to state political opinions, and more in a riveting discussion.

Forums are conducted in each of the four Upper School grades. The seniors went first discussing whether civil discourse was possible in today’s democracy.
