Prof. Kaye to present two short films at Neville Public Museum this Wednesday (Dec. 5)
UW-Green Bay Ben & Joyce Rosenberg Professor Harvey J. Kaye (Democracy and Justice Studies) will be introducing two shorts films from the 1940s and discussing Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms speech as part of the Green Bay Film Society’s International Film Series at the Neville Public Museum, this Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. Prof. Kaye’s most recent book, “The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great,” analyzes the social and historical context of the speech as well as Norman Rockwell’s visual representation of them. Kaye was then asked by Turner Classic Movies to select and present four films that represented each freedom. He’ll discuss the speech and two of those films as part of the series. The event is free and open to the public.
