Part I - Intro to three Eleanor Roosevelt Living History Programs

1. "This is My Story"
Eleanor Roosevelt during the Great Depression
Meet first lady Eleanor Roosevelt in 1937, during her husband's second term as president, in the unfolding years of the New Deal. Hear her views on how you can make a difference in the midst of a strife-filled world — views at least as relevant today as they were seven decades ago.

2. "What We Are Fighting For"
Eleanor Roosevelt during World War II
It is December 1942. Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt has just returned from England where she visited with soldiers, generals, royalty, and the working people. Find out how the First Lady feels about the individual's role in a world torn by war, hardship, and uncertainty.

3. "Hammering Out Human Rights"
Eleanor Roosevelt at the United Nations
Dubbed "First Lady of the World" by President Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt speaks of the ground-breaking, grueling, tempestuous, and eventually triumphant development of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a Magna Carta for humankind. You may be surprised to find out how important Human Rights are to your life, and to the potential longevity of the United States
