Offered by: Franklin D. Roosevelt President Library & Museum
Program Description:
Eleanor Roosevelt was born a shy, timid girl in a family of power, position, and wealth. From the outside her life would seem to be charmed, but a closer examination charts a lonely course from one betrayal to another. The compassion that she showered on others, here and around the world, was developed in part by her personal understanding what it feels like to be hurt, left out and neglected. This talk examines the trials and turmoil in the life of one of the greatest and most influential woman in the history of our republic.- by Jeff Urbin
