Moral Drama (1943-1948)
First broadcast during WWII, Lest We Forget is a patriotic program that serves as a reminder of what America stands for. Created by the Institute for Democratic Education and Boston University Radio Institute, it is "dedicated to Americans about the type of America in which we want to live."
There are several mini-series in Lest We Forget. Lest We Forget: The American Dream is anti-discrimination themed and teaches acceptance and tolerance for racial and religious differences. Lest We Forget: Stories to Remember is similarly themed, telling stories such as one about youth going off to war for both right and wrong reasons. Lest We Forget: These Great Americans tell about past presidents and other important figures in American history, such as the man who laid the foundation for the growth of unions.
Lest We Forget can teach us all a lesson that some often forget, stories that promote morality, good values, and the principle that "all men are created equal.
For more tales of great Americans lend an ear to Destination Freedom, a program about civil rights.
