Friday, June 5, 2020
Since 2003, Sheryl Faye has masterfully brought to life important historical women in performances across the United States. Her one-woman shows immerse the audience in a multimedia learning experience that captivates viewers and sparks their interest to explore more.
Eleanor Roosevelt suffered through an unhappy childhood, losing both parents and a brother. After figuring out where she fit in and could make a difference, she grew up to become the longest-serving First Lady of the United States. She was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She was one of the first delegates to the United Nations, and is considered one of the top ten most admired people of the 20th century.
