Identify, describe, and analyze: what freedom meant during the WW2 period (for white and black – and others if warranted); how that freedom was challenged or resisted by different groups; any legislation, programs, or political movements that were associated with the WW2 period.

A

a. During WW2, freedom used to be seen conveying the idea of people’s liberation from the Nazi/Japanese oppression. Among the main reasons for America’s entrance into WW2 was the protection of freedom from the Axis powers.

b. The greatest threat to freedom through the 1941-1945 period was the wartime limitation of citizens’ civil rights. The internment of Japanese-Americans for the duration of the war is perfectly illustrative, in this regard.

c. The most influential political developments that took place during the WW2 were the signing of the 1941 War Powers Act by Franklin D. Roosevelt, which increased the scope of the Federal government’s executive powers, and the holding of the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, which laid a foundation for the post-war economic order in the world.
