Overview

From Marcus Garvey to Maya Angelou, Say It Plain gives listeners a vivid, moving portrait of how black Americans have sounded the charge against injustice, exhorting the country to live up to its democratic principles. Most of these recordings have been tucked away in archives and libraries and are presented for the first time here. A book-and-2-CD set, Say It Plain assembles actual recordings of speeches by the twentieth century's leading African American cultural, literary, and political figures. The set captures an incomparable tradition of oratory and includes some of the most powerful public speeches of the past century.

Say It Plain includes one CD of digitally remastered speeches and transcripts of the speeches with historical introductions.
