Dear First Lady Roosevelt,
First Lady Roosevelt, let me start by saying, thank you for working with the NAACP to help African Americans in their struggle against racism and segregation.  My name is Betty and my mother has been your maid for the last five years.  I am writing to you in hopes that you can help my parents and myself to be able to not have to work so hard at being treated fair.  First Lady Roosevelt, I know that you how hard that my mother works taking care of you and your family.  I know that since your husband is the President of the United States that you have resources that you can use to help us with the barriers of racial discrimination and not being allowed housing in the Arthurdale community.   My mother will still continue to serve you and your family but I am asking you to help her to be able to have a life as well.  First Lady, I know that you are a fair person because my mother talks about how fair you are to all people, regardless of color.  First Lady Roosevelt, it is really hard to watch my parents with the everyday life of the struggles of poverty and racism.  I have read about how you have fought for equal rights for African Americans  against segregation and racial discrimination so I know that you could help us.  I want to thank you in advance for any assistance that you can give to me and my family.  
I chose to write as the daughter of First Lady Roosevelt’s maid because she would be able to know how hard that my parents worked daily providing for the family.  She would also know that our family is a good family that tries daily to do what is right but keeps getting knocked down by racism and poverty.

Dear First Lady Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt,
Hi My name is Barbara, I am  an African American   domestic servant in Birmingham, Alabama. I have been supporting the views and   ideas of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for a long time now. I have marched   alongside him on various occasions. I was present for the bus boycott, as   well as the March on Washington. I appreciate the efforts of Dr. Martin   Luther King Jr., as well as the efforts you have put forth on behalf of the   African American community.
First Lady, I come to you today on behalf of the African   American community asking you to join forces with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.   and assist us in moving along a little faster. We are having slow progress   with the attempt to gain civil rights. Our voices are not being heard. We   come peacefully, but we are being beaten down in the streets for trying to   have a voice.
My husband is a factory worker. We have two sons, one is   ten years old and the other is twelve years old. We are barely able to make   ends meet but we work hard for everything we have. I live in fear for my   family every day because of the discrimination we face. I fear that when my   sons become men, they will face the same disadvantages we face now. I do   believe that change will come, but I wonder when. Please help us to help   ourselves.
I chose to write this letter to Eleanor Roosevelt   because although she supported the democratic party, she had become impatient   with their commitment to Civil Rights. She devoted herself to civil and   women’s rights and she would have been able to get through to her husband,   President Roosevelt, so that the voices of African Americans could be heard.   She believed in working with Civil Rights Activist, opposed to only working   with political officials.
