A Conversation With Eleanor Roosevelt
From NBC's Wisdom SeriesStreaming Video - 2010
From her privileged family background to her passion for social activism, this 1959 NBC program touches on a wide range of Eleanor Roosevelt's memories, concerns, and goals. The former first lady points out that she took no interest in women's suffrage until after she was married and because FDR favored it, but she also recalls how her husband did not hold her to any set patterns or object to her extended speaking tours. Acknowledging FDR's unwillingness to support an anti-lynching bill, Roosevelt says her husband's greatest accomplishments were the actions he took to overcome the Depression, restoring the self-confidence of the American people, and the continuation of atomic research. His biggest mistakes, in her view, were his attempt to reform the judicial system and his involvement in certain elections.
