   schema:description ""Brenda Eatman Aghahowa's perceptive analysis of and tribute to Barbara Jordan is an auspicious contribution to rhetoric studies. The presentation is both scholarly and novelistic, a joy to read. Most important, in resituating the work of a valiant public servant, Aghahowa reminds us that--long before 'Number 23'--to be considered Jordanesque in craft was great praise."--Keith Gilyard Penn State University."@en ;
   schema:description ""Brenda Eatman Aghahowa's Grace Under Fire: Barbara Jordan's Rhetoric of Watergate, Patriotism, and Equality is an insightful and historically-aware study of the rhetoric of one of the most influential orators in the twentieth century. Aghahowa explores the sources of Jordan's rhetorical power and moral vision in classical European, African, and African-American rhetorical traditions along with the tradition of patriotism in America. Furthermore, she connects Jordan to the present through tributes and remarks from important people who knew her [or admired her] and through Aghahowa's own thought-provoking analysis of the contemporary rhetorical landscape. Aghahowa's book will stand as a landmark work for many years to come."--Lester Faigley University of Texas at Austin --Book Jacket."@en ;
