Get ready to enhance your vocabulary and increase your knowledge of American history. ?Great Speeches By African Americans?, edited by James Daley is a quintessential anthology of American?s political, social and economic pulse as voiced by some of America?s leading intellectuals: W. E. B. Du Bois, Martin Luther King, Jr., Sojourner Truth, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, and Barack Obama, to name a few. These orations, though spoken some decades and others centuries ago, are all too applicable to 21st Century America. The permeating refrain that links each speech is ?Wake up America, from your racial abhorrence and social apathy?.
