Description

Join us for a Zoom presentation on Thursday, March 4 at 6:30 pm for a Women’s History Month Presentation on Eleanor Roosevelt: Compassion and Betrayal


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 women in the history of our republic. 

Our guest speaker, Jeffrey Urbin is the Education Specialist and Director of the Pare Lorentz Film Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York. 

Registration required. You will be sent the Zoom link on the day of the event.
