29 July, 2014 By Sara Leave a Comment The icon and state of the mind of the week is the most inspiring and wise First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt.
What’s inspiring about her, was that she was only happy, only fulfilled when she was helping others. Throughout the 1920s, she engaged in an active speaking agenda, an unusual role for a woman at that time and unprecedented for a first lady. Later, Eleanor was the first and, to date, the only first lady to receive honorary membership in the respected sorority for African- American women, Alpha Kappa Alpha. Over her lifetime, Eleanor was awarded 35 honorary degrees and the United Nations Human Rights Prize.
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. A confidence that persevered even amidst the controversy her husband would find himself surrounding his very progressive agenda for America.


When she passed away in 1962, her memorial service was attended by President Kennedy and former Presidents Truman and Eisenhower. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. And so she worked non-stop for the poor, for African-Americans (at the time extremely marginalized) and for all those who were getting a tough break, one way or the other, during the 1930s and 40s. Her business- and social-reform activities after the Roosevelts moved into the White House.
Her activity for the civil rights movement included speaking engagements at African-American institutions and public support of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism and fostering racial reconciliation.
As FDR feel victim to his health, eventually being confined to a wheelchair, she provided strength and confidence to their marriage.


She caused outrage among conservative groups when she appointed an African-American woman to be head of the Division of Negro Affairs. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as President of the African National Congress party from 1991 to 1997. As a very visible first lady in the infancy of television Eleanor made several appearances including a very well received appearance on “What’s My Line”.
