Description:
 A quiet life for Eleanor Roosevelt is a misnomer for part two of her story. Hounded by the FBI, Eleanorís file is 3,000 pages thick and the KKK has a $25,000 bounty on her head. On the world stage, she discovers that the name ĎUnited Nationsí is an oxymoron. Bridging the gap between prejudice and reality, Eleanor spends the last decades of her life helping the American people open their eyes to blind spots and to have the courage to change. Donít worry if you missed part one of Annís presentation; sheíll recap.
