Eleanor Roosevelt
on
The Power of Words

Sunday January 14, 2018
2:00 P.M.

From words of her father that gave her strength, to famous words by her husband that helped the nation through the Great Depression; from her own words spoken to audiences or given over the radio, to observations and opinions written into over 4100 articles in her six-days-a-week My Day column (that is, to date, as of early 1950 when the program is set) Eleanor Roosevelt shows how words well chosen can bring attention to a topic, awaken understanding, and bring the listener to a new point of view. Specific subject matter addresses such diverse topics as: unemployment, race relations, honoring servicemen, economic ties with Mexico, wealth & power, and international relations. Mrs. Roosevelt includes a segment on how words misused can be harmful as well: hurtful to an individual, harmful to a group, or endangering to a whole nation. The program culminates with a brief look at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

$22 general admisison, $18 members. Information and Tickets available at the Tarponarts Website.

The Boulder Senior Center
presents

"Hammering Out Human Rights" - Eleanor Roosevelt at the United Nations

March 14, 2018
12:45-1:45 PM

Boulder West Senior Center
909 Arapahoe, Boulder, CO.

Dubbed "First Lady of the World" by President Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt speaks of the ground-breaking, grueling, tempestuous, and eventually triumphant development of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a Magna Carta for humankind. Along the way, we gain insights to what brought Mrs. Roosevelt to be at the United Nations in the first place and the fears that are currently (in 1950) stoking animosities between the Soviet Union and the United States. You may be surprised to find out why Human Rights are important to your life and to the strength of the country. One-hour program includes an in-character monolog, a Q&A with Mrs. Roosevelt, and a Q&A with the presenter.

Free and open to the public. Registration requested. To register click here.
