Michigan Radio and Wallace House welcome Joshua Johnson, host of NPR's "1A" to Ann Arbor for a special live event. Joshua and his panel of guests will examine the first amendment, free speech and what it means in a divided America.

With a name inspired by the First Amendment, 1A explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports, and humor. 1A's goal is to act as a national mirror -- taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be.

Watch the discussion live at 6 p.m. ET here:
