Register for "Herbert Hoover’s 'This Challenge to Liberty' Speech"

April 6, 2021, 3:50 PM CT - 5:00 PM CT | Hosted by: Oklahoma Council for the Social Studies

Days before the 1936 presidential election, former president Herbert Hoover delivered this speech, in which he points out what he sees as the problems of FDR’s New Deal programs and the vast changes in the federal executive that were associated with it. This is an excellent document to present as a counterpoint to FDR’s ideas, and will help you gain a more comprehensive view on the debates and issues of the times.

All attendees of this free Seminar will be provided with a certificate for continuing education and a digital copy of the agenda and document.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
