Florida Atlantic University’s Lifelong Learning Society Jupiter will present a lecture by Allida Black, Ph.D., on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 10 a.m. in the Lifelong Learning Society complex at FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus, 5353 Parkside Dr., in Jupiter.

Black’s lecture, “Eleanor Roosevelt and the Battle for Human Rights: 1945-Present,” is based on “ The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers,” a project designed to preserve, teach and apply Roosevelt’s writings and discussions of human rights and democratic politics. A noted Roosevelt scholar, Black has written extensively on the woman who redefined American liberalism and democratic reform.

Black, a researcher and professor of history and international affairs at George Washington University, has gathered hundreds of columns, essays, speeches, and photographs providing an in-depth look at the political writings of one of liberalism’s most outspoken leaders and trailblazers for human rights, women’s rights and global relations.  Black, who is currently designing a multimedia traveling exhibit on Roosevelt politics and policy, is a board of governors’ member of the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute, an advisory board member of the Center for New Deal Studies and a director of the Liberian Education trust, a project designed to rebuild the Liberian public school system.

Tickets are $30 for members and $40 for non-members. For more information, contact the Lifelong Learning Society at 561-799-8547 or visit www.fau.edu/llsjupiter.
