(Virtual) LGBTQ+ History: Eleanor Roosevelt and Val-Kill

June 13 @ 7:00 pm

Via Zoom.
During Eleanor Roosevelt’s lifetime, most LGBTQ+ people lived their lives quietly or in secret, and history has often obscured details about sexuality and gender expression in its accounts of famous LGBTQ+ lives. But at Eleanor’s home at Val-Kill, she surrounded herself with influential women that today we recognize as lesbian. These women, including Nancy Cook, Marion Dickerman, Esther Lape, Elizabeth Read, and Lorena Hickok, played an important role not only in Eleanor’s personal life, but in her political development and activism.
Join us for a ranger talk from Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site at her home, Val-Kill, to learn more about Eleanor and the women who helped shape her career.
