A new reference that presents a look at history through some 230 speeches by some 130 prominent African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans from the late 1700s through early 1995. Each entry includes a biographical sketch that provides information on the listee's life and career, and frames the context for the speech that follows. Where an entry contains more than one speech, each speech has its own introduction. Following many speeches is a brief summary paragraph, and all entries end with sources of further information. The introduction consists of four separate essays which provide brief overviews of oratory traditions among the four cultural groups. Includes a timeline, several indexes, and some 100 photos of listees. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
