Thank you for joining us as we celebrated the 75th anniversary of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt becoming chair of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights and drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We can’t thank Historian John F Sears enough for spending time discussing the impact of her work and how we move forward as a nation regarding human rights. As a reminder, you can now purchase John’s book Refuge Must Be Given: Eleanor Roosevelt, the Jewish Plight, and the Founding of Israel, which was published by Purdue University Press.
