Eleanor Roosevelt and the Politics of Federal Aid for Education in Mid-Twentieth Century America
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Part III of the American Creed: Community Conversation Series

The summer of 1949 witnessed a well-publicized clash between Cardinal Francis Spellman of the Archdiocese of New York and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt over the revised Federal Aid for Education Bill. The new iteration of the bill excluded the possibility of federal assistance to non-public schools and placed funds for schools in the hands of the states. Spellman claimed the bill was anti-Catholic. Without expressing her outright support for the bill, Roosevelt, nevertheless indicated that tax dollars should only be used for public schools. What ensued was a contentious debate between the Cardinal and Roosevelt. It also galvanized thousands of citizens to write to Roosevelt explaining why they agreed or disagreed with her position. This program looks at both the debate and the letters. Significantly, the letters to Roosevelt reveal insights into how American citizens understood American identity and values -- they raise issues about both religion and race. The letters also hint to developing fissures in the Democratic camp, cracks that will not become widely noticeable until Richard Nixon’s campaign for the presidency in 1968.  Presenter Dr. Sally Dwyer-McNulty of Marist College.

1969, the hangover from the most turbulent year of the Swinging Sixties, 1968.

Somalia is overthrown. But man lands on the moon, women's lib is becoming a significant issue, the Smothers Brothers are fired. Peace talks are stalled and massive demonstrations continue. Agnew rips the media.  Presenter Evan Weiner is an award winning journalist and recognized global expert of the Politics of Sports Business, his daily video podcast.  In the United States, he has been a radio commentator, TV pundit on MSNBC, NewsMax and ABC. He is also an author of eight books and a frequent college speaker.

Great Decisions: The Rise of Populism in Europe
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.  Facilitator: Martin Charwat
