“Eleanor Roosevelt, the Power of Words”

“Eleanor Roosevelt, the Power of Words”

Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time as you meet one of the most influential women in world history – Eleanor Roosevelt. Journey with the longest serving First Lady as she travels tirelessly as the President’s legs. Sit with her at the United Nations table as she hammers out the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Stand with her as she works relentlessly for workers rights, women’s rights, civil rights and world peace. Hear her give voice to the powerless.

You’ll laugh – you’ll be challenged – you’ll have lots of questions. And Eleanor Roosevelt will answer them. And as always at Chautauqua, the audience is part of the show. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.

“We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die together
or we are going to learn to live together, and if we are to live together
we have to talk.”
 – Eleanor Roosevelt to Soviet Leader Nikita Krushchev
