From the bully pulpit to the church pulpit, before packed rooms and television cameras, the most compelling force behind humanity's long march toward racial and social justice has been the power of the spoken word. This book celebrates that valiant journey. [In this volume, the editor] brings together the most influential and important voices from the civil rights movements of African Americans, Asian Americans, gays, Hispanic Americans, and women. [The book] spans the colonial period to the present, and is filled with the speech of leaders - famous and obscure - who led the charge for equal opportunity. With voices as diverse as Cesar Chavez, Harvey Milk, and Betty Friedan, the anthology constitutes a unique chronicle of the nation's civil rights movements, and the critical issues they've tackled, from slavery and suffrage to immigration and affirmative action. In this collection, we relive the courage of abolitionists like Frederick Douglass and John Brown, who fought the tides of racism, and experience the conviction of those like Susan B. Anthony and Sojourner Truth, who championed the right to vote. Their words open a treasured window into the struggle for civil rights: a captivating picture of the movements, their history, and the difficulties and triumphs minorities from all backgrounds have faced. The voices of these freedom fighters are heard, loud and clear, in page after page of this book. Featuring a foreword by former President Bill Clinton and an afterword by Mary Frances Berry, this anthology is an indispensable compilation of the words-the ripples of hope-that, collectively, have changed American history.-Dust jacket
