Kaye posts essay on anniversary of FDR’s ‘Second Bill of Rights’
Tuesday was the 67th anniversary of President Franklin Roosevelt’s “Second Bill of Rights” radio address to the nation. Delivered on Jan. 11, 1944, with confidence growing that the Allies would defeat fascism and imperialism, FDR looked ahead to renewed peace and prosperity and the need to address economic justice. UW-Green Bay Prof. Harvey Kaye posted an essay about that speech, including a link to film of FDR reciting its key passages, at newdeal 2.0, the online publication of the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute. The prolific Kaye is at work on his new book on FDR and his vision, titled The Four Freedoms and the Promise of America. See the new essay.
