Ted Rall: Snowden’s Courageous Betrayal of Big Brother
7:00PM, Tuesday, September 29, 2015
Great Hall / $5 – Doors open: 6:00 pm
When NSA contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the U.S. government two years ago, he changed the state of privacy, technology, and security. What motivated him to leak top-secret documents and be labeled as a traitor? Political cartoonist (and cultural commentator extraordinaire) Ted Rall’s Snowden attempts to answer that question. The illustrator of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, Rall’s latest work chronicles Snowden’s early life and career in what Noam Chomsky calls a “dramatic, thoughtful and very accessible account.” In addition to discussing these underlying motivations, Rall will explore the meaning of courage–and what it takes to act when all eyes are watching.
