"I believe any person would benefit from her talk, no matter their age, gender, race, socioeconomic status, education level or political beliefs. However, I think this topic is particularly beneficial for college students, faculty and administrators. College administrators and faculty are responsible for cultivating an environment in which students grow in many ways, including thought. However, our college campuses currently preach diversity of every kind - except diversity of thought. This talk is important for students who deal with suppression of free speech on a daily basis, but also for administrators and faculty who are the ones responsible for constructing the sheltered culture in which we live.
I had a lot of takeaways from Karith’s presentation. She’s brilliant and hilarious. It’s particularly interesting how she has used her platform to promote free speech, when many in the industry prefer to either stay silent (at best) or actively oppose free speech (at worst.) That’s not to say she’s the only one, but she’s certainly one of a select few who are strong and brave enough to go against the grain. One takeaway is that her use of humor to promote free speech is one of the best ways to tackle the issue, because oftentimes comedy allows us to talk about difficult topics that we otherwise would not.
Karith was a pleasure to work with. We had no issues getting everything set up and running.
I thought Karith’s speech was a great experience. I learned a lot, and I know that the others in attendance did, too. I wish that every person could hear this talk, but especially everyone who attends college or works on a college campus. Her knowledge on so many issues and her comedic presence affords her the unique opportunity to be an agent of true change in the way that our generation thinks about free speech."
