Faculty note: Kaye talks FDR’s vision for Four Freedoms on NPR
“Seventy-one years ago, Franklin Delano Roosevelt died suddenly, and the world wondered what would happen next. FDR’s death came during the crux of World War II — less than four weeks before the Germans surrendered. Without FDR’s guidance, Americans had a hard time imagining how they would confront the world. But before the war began, FDR laid out his vision for what that world should look like in his ‘Four Freedoms’ speech, which he delivered in January 1941. Prof. Harvey Kaye is interviewed by NPR’s John Hockenberry. Listen to the interview.
