Sheryl Faye Presents
“Historical Women”: Making the Past the Present
Eleanor Roosevelt, The First lady of the World.

After suffering through an unhappy childhood, and losing her parents and one of her brothers, she figured out where she fit in and could make a difference. She grew up and became an American politician. The longest serving First Lady of the United States. She was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She became one of the first delegates to The United Nations. One of the top ten most admired people of the 20th century. “…as individuals we live cooperatively, and, to the best of our ability, serve the community in which we live…our own success, to be real, must contribute.” – Eleanor Roosevelt,
