"The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great"

Harvey Kaye

About the Program

Harvey Kaye recalls President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s public acknowledgement on January 6, 1941, of “four freedoms” that all people should be entrusted with, which included freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.  The author examines the progressivism of the Roosevelt-era and argues that a reminder of the “four freedoms” could address today’s political and social issues.  Harvey Kaye speaks at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
