Eleanor Roosevelt

Join author and historian Carol Cohen for a look into the life of Eleanor Roosevelt.  

During this presentation, meet Eleanor Roosevelt at her home in Hyde Park, New York  to learn about her role as a human rights activist, via primary sources that were very much a part of Eleanor Roosevelt's personal and professional life. Cohen's presentation is both interesting and interactive focusing on Eleanor after the death of Franklin, when she is living at Val Kill on her own. And has just returned from Paris France where the Declaration of Human Rights has been passed at the United Nations. 

This program is part portrayal and part power point presentation.

Carol Cohen is on the faculty of Lesley University and is a published historian and playwright.   Carol recently published  Begin with a Box : A Hands On Resource for Teaching and Learning with Empress Publishers and is presently working on a book called Lessons with Eleanor Roosevelt.
