The Great Tennessee Monkey Trial
by Peter Goodchild
Adapted from the original trial transcripts, this story is based on the Scopes Trial which debated the right to teach the theory of evolution in public schools, & reaffirmed the principle of intellectual freedom as codified in the Bill of Rights. The trial, in a small-town Tennessee courtroom in 1925, set the stage for ongoing national debates over freedom of inquiry and the separation of church and state in a democratic society — debates that continue to this day.
