About Jesus Christ

Jesus of Nazareth was born in approximately 6 (or 4) BC to his mother Mary and her husband Joseph, a carpenter. As a young man, he followed Joseph into the carpentry business but, as an adult, became renowned as a prophet and philosopher. To many of his followers, Jesus was considered to be the long-awaited Christ or Messiah. The speech in this volume was transcribed by one of his disciples, Matthew, and is commonly known as the Sermon on the Mount. It contains what is known to us today as both the Lord's Prayer and the Beatitudes (or blessings) that he offers at the outset of the speech. Jesus would eventually be arrested and crucified by the Roman government and is believed by many to have been resurrected, now sitting at the right hand of God, awaiting his return to Earth during the Second Coming.

Frederick Douglass

In 1852, Frederick Douglass, former slave and, by then, a leading figure in the abolitionist movement was asked by the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Association to address the group for their July 4th celebration at Corinthian Hall in Rochester, New York. Delivered, in fact, on the 5th of July, the speech caused an immediate sensation and swiftly became a seminal rallying cry of the abolitionist movement in America. The audience in Rochester included none other than President Millard Fillmore (along with a group of politicians from Washington) as well as some of the most important leaders of the abolitionist movement at the time.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) became most widely known as the wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and thus the longest-serving First Lady in American history, but she was also an accomplished diplomat, civil rights advocate and a fierce campaigner for basic human rights around the globe. Easily one of the most admired Americans of the 20th century, Eleanor Roosevelt fundamentally altered the role of First Lady, often speaking on behalf of her husband due to his persistent health issues, and did not try to disguise when she disagreed with her husband on policy issues. After leaving the White House, Eleanor served as the US Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945-1952 and delivered the speech in this volume at the Sorbonne in Paris on September 28, 1948.
