Eleanor Roosevelt: "We Make Our Own History"

In Tomorrow Is Now, written during the last months of her life, Eleanor Roosevelt proclaimed, “One thing I believe profoundly: We make our own history.” This quote is a clarion call for all of us to use history to guide principled individual action to make the world a better place to live. Three students enrolled in History 3151, a research practicum in public history, curated the exhibits that follow. Please click on "New Situtations, New Answers" to the right to start the exhibit.
