Publisher's Summary

This is a special production from SoundCraft Audiobooks and is volume nine in the History's Greatest Speeches series.

The struggle for human rights, emancipation, civil rights, social justice, voting rights, and freedom from discrimination and tyranny is captured here in this volume of speeches by some of the most influential and brilliant Black orators in history.

From Sojourner Truth questioning society's role in subjugating Black women to Nelson Mandela facing a life sentence in prison with dignity and unequaled poise, this collection of speeches highlights the contributions of these unique speakers who stood up to prejudice, violence, prison, and even death itself to assert their rights as human beings.

This volume also features Booker T. Washington's "Atlanta Compromise" speech, Mary E. Church Terrell's opining on what it means to be a Black woman in the nation's capitol, Ida B. Wells' condemnation of the scourge of lynching in America, W.E.B. Du Bois famous "A Negro Nation Within a Nation" speech to the NAACP, and Thurgood Marshall's historic argument for fairness in education before the United States Supreme Court in the landmark case Brown vs. Board of Education.

The contributions of these great speakers to the fight for basic human rights cannot be overstated. We are proud to be able to present these breathtaking and stirring orations highlighting the voices of Black speakers throughout history.
