The visceral impact of history's great speechmakers is at the heart of Say It Plain. This new American RadioWorks documentary highlights a selection of landmark sermons, speeches, and broadcasts by remarkable Africa-American speakers.
Say It Plain delves into a vibrant tradition of African-American oratory that connects figures as different in style and ideology as Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey, Shirley Chisholm and Julian Bond. It's a vivid portrait of black Americans exhorting the nation to make good on its democratic promises.
