Overview

This book is an anthology of speeches by African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and white American females.

Some of those minority orations are scattered in various locales through time. Burke has collected speeches of minorities who have been able to utilize America's public platform effectively while simultaneously battling against discrimination and racial prejudice.
