Rights activist Edward C. Lawson and playwright/actor John Fleck appear on Oprah in 1990 to discuss free speech, flag burning, publicly-funded art, and more.
You might remember Fleck as Silik from Star Trek: Enterprise. He was one of the “NEA Four” whose National Endowment for the Arts grants for performance art were vetoed on the basis of subject matter (after having been approved by a peer panel process), leading to charges of censorship and a Supreme Court case which ultimately found in their favor.
