Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the most active and admired First Ladies in history. She had her own radio program and a weekly newspaper column called “My Day” which was her public diary. Eleanor held weekly news conferences and traveled around the country giving speeches and visiting poor neighborhoods. She was a strong advocate of human rights, especially for women, African Americans and young people. After her husband died, President Truman made her delegate to the United Nations.
