Allida Black, Research Professor of History and International Affairs at George Washington University joined us to discuss the recent reissue of Eleanor Roosevelt’s Tomorrow is Now, for which she penned the introduction.  As relevant and influential now as it was when first published in 1963, Tomorrow Is Now is Eleanor Roosevelt’s manifesto and her final effort to move America toward the community she hoped it would become.  For this new edition, issued by Penguin Classics, former U.S. President Bill Clinton contributes a new foreword and Dr. Black provides an authoritative introduction focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt’s diplomatic career. Dr. Black is founding editor of The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers – a project designed to preserve, teach and apply Eleanor Roosevelt’s writings and discussions of human rights and democratic politics and editor of the fdr4freedoms park Digital Initiative.
