Review of Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt is an inspiring speaker, and the clip hearkens back in the day when our leaders spoke about keeping away from war, rather than running towards it.

Review of Eleanor Roosevelt

This is a review of the series. Where we once were and where we are today - these moments are public radio at its best - sparkling gold dust in the form of snippets of voices from the past. Enough is said in each moment, though, to give listeners food for thought. These moments are why I love public radio.
