The Eleanor Roosevelt Lecture Series was created in 2004 to honor Eleanor Roosevelt’s commitment to social justice and her important place in women’s history. First Lady and U.N. Ambassador Eleanor Roosevelt served on Brandeis University’s Board of Trustees from 1949 until her death in 1962 and was Visiting Lecturer of International Relations from 1959 to 1962. She gave the University’s first commencement address in 1952, receiving an honorary doctorate in Humane Letters in 1954.
Join us for our 12th Annual Roosevelt Lecture, October 28th at 4pm, Alumni Lounge, Usdan
College and Community Fellowship's Theater for Social Change will offer a spoken word performance titled, "The Letters Behind My Name." Based in Harlem this group "uses theater to raise awareness about the impact of mass incarceration on women, families, and communities. TSC’s original performances are based on ensemble members’ life stories and experiences with the criminal justice system and as returning citizens, with a focus on eliminating barriers to higher education and advocating for reform."
