Read This BBC Magazine Article on Eleanor Roosevelt

An amazing (if brief) piece of journalism.

I’m ashamed that I know so little about our former First Lady, who seems to have been at the fore of all manners of progressive politics. She championed “world peace, better conditions in the workplace and women’s rights,” and refused to sit in a white-only audience section at a Birmingham, AL conference in 1938.

However next year’s election plays out (and I’m not necessarily a Hillary Clinton supporter) all Americans can learn from Roosevelt’s vision, beliefs and perseverance.
