130th Anniversary of FDR's Birth
This "Second Bill of Rights" speech was delivered by FDR on January 11, 1944 during his State of the Union address to Congress. The speech was delivered to the American public via radio because Roosevelt was suffering from the flu.
He asked that cameras record the "Second Bill of Rights" portion of the speech for later broadcast. This footage was believed to have been lost until it was rediscovered in 2008 by Michael Moore.
Monday, January 30th is the 130th anniversary of FDR's birth.
