ANNIVERSARY TALK
Rockwell, Roosevelt and the Four Freedoms
Sunday, January 6
1:30 p.m.

On January 6, 1941, in his Annual Address to Congress, President Franklin D. Roosevelt argued that Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear should be accepted as human rights not only in the United States, but across the world. On this 78th anniversary of Roosevelt’s Address, Curator of Education Tom Daly will explore the transformation of those Four Freedoms from abstract words into concrete images, and from an optimistic rhetorical concept into a living statement of human rights and dignity. Festive refreshments will be served. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission. Free for children 18 and under.
