October 15th, 2009

Now let's take another look at "Lest We Forget", a series syndicated by the Institute for Democratic Education in the late 1940s and early 50s to combat prejudice.  Although they might seem a little heavy-handed, the shows are well written and produced and are an interesting snap shot of community service programming of the time.
