The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers

Eleanor Roosevelt, JFK Campaign Ad

[Announcer]: Here is a message from Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt.
Eleanor Roosevelt: If we are to be the spokesmen for a free world, we must begin at home by assuring all our peoples regardless of race, religion, or national origin equal opportunity under law and under God. When you cast your vote for the president of the United States, be sure you have studied the record. I have. I urge you to vote for John F. Kennedy, for I have come to believe that as a president, he will have the strength and the moral courage to provide the leadership for human rights we need in this time of crisis. He is a man with a sense of history.
[Announcer]: Vote for John F. Kennedy for president.
