Eleanor Roosevelt was a towering pioneer, visionary and advocate for peace, equality, women’s rights and human rights. She promised a better future for both men and women of all cultures through her actions and her lead role as architect of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Frazer Dougherty, a creative force in early public television in the Hamptons, was so inspired by ELEANOR’s life after reading Blanche Wiesen Cook’s Biography of Eleanor Roosevelt he purchased the media rights for TV to share the light of her stories to a larger national and global audience.
To advance ELEANOR, Frazer engaged Cannon Hersey, grandson of legendary acclaimed Hiroshima author John Hersey, to complete the project that he started. Cannon is a social changemaker and founder of 1Future.com and now the President of Paradise Producers Productions, that holds the rights to ELEANOR.
Martha Williams, a media innovator and culture shift agent, has joined the team as the Director of the Eleanor campaign and established the focus towards a national holiday and engaging baby boomers to Gen Z audiences with the spirit of ELEANOR Roosevelt unique approach to life and politics.
