Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, although born in an affluent family, had the distinction of being considered the "Ugly Duckling" of the family, compounded by the loss of her parents at an early age.  Still, her Brilliance remained. Click here: Eleanor Roosevelt.biographyis the most celebrated First Lady and the most outspoken.  She supported civil & human rights throughout the world and shared her Brilliance publically:

  • First Lady of the United States from 1933 - 1945/First Lady of New York State
  • Presidential Commission on the Status of Women
  • United Sates Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly
  • United States Representative to & Chairman for the United Nations Commission on Human Rights

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.  Such are the places where every man,  woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."-E.Roosevelt.     Join us as we talk Brilliance
