Rick Tyler, a Polk County man who ran for Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District House of Representatives seat in 2016 and drew national attention for “Make America White Again” billboards, is renting space on campus for an event titled, “White Nationalism: Fact or Fiction.”

I want to provide information about an event that is scheduled for May 28 at 6 p.m. at Alumni Memorial Building entitled, “White Nationalism: Fact or Fiction.”

Where is the line between free speech and hate speech? This difficult question will be surveyed by a panel featuring four UT professors.

On February 12, 2018, the Student Government Association hosted a panel of UT administrators, faculty, and students on the issue of free speech in light of the upcoming Traditionalist Worker Party event.
