YLSA of New York City - Annual Luncheon
Freedom of speech, racial equality, the right to privacy, and fair trial guarantees — the lynchpins of modern liberal freedom -- were all essentially unknown to American Constitutional law before the middle third of the twentieth century. John Witt's new work-in-progress offers an unusual explanation for this radical new concept of American freedom, one that looks to the great cultural controversies of the 1920s and early 1930s — and to the little-known story of the New York City philanthropic foundation that quietly financed them.
