Join Jeffrey Urbin, educator, from the Roosevelt Presidential Museum and Library in Hyde Park, NY for the for the second in a series of history talks about FDR and his legacy. On January 6, 1941, Franklin Roosevelt shared with the country his vision for a world founded on “four essential freedoms.” This session brings into clearer focus the vision he held for all the world. Interactive discussion topics include: What is the distinction between a freedom “of” and a freedom “from”? How was the concept of the Four Freedoms a thread in everything FDR did during his time as President? How are these freedoms threatened and defended in America, and the world, today? If a fifth freedom were to be added, what might it be? The Four Freedoms’ role in the creation of the UN.
