In August 1943, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt set out in secret for the Pacific on an arduous journey that was part goodwill tour, part fact-finding foray, and part informal diplomatic mission. She returned five weeks and 25,000 miles later, having trekked to Hawaii, New Zealand, and Australia, through the South Pacific and into territory still under enemy air attack. This precedent-breaking trip is chronicled in full for the first time in "The First Lady of World War II: Eleanor Roosevelt’s Daring Journey to the Frontlines and Back" by Shannon McKenna Schmidt. Join Shannon and moderator Dr. Ashley Robertson Preston, Assistant Professor of History at Howard University and Director of Undergraduate Studies, for the conversation at 6 p.m. EST. Read more
