Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

William A. Harris, Director of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, will join us for a conversation about their special exhibit, “Black Americans, Civil Rights, and the Roosevelts, 1932-1962.” Developed in collaboration with a distinguished committee of scholars, the exhibit centers the historical voices of many Black community leaders, wartime service members, and ordinary citizens who engaged the Roosevelt administration directly and who pushed for progress. Within this context, the exhibit examines the political evolution of both Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt regarding racial justice.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5:30 pm ET on February 6.
