Civil RightsBook - 2003
From Frederick Douglass to Nelson Mandela, Great Speeches in History: Civil Rights chronicles the voices that led--and continue to lead--the struggle for civil rights in America. Covering 150 years, predating even the Emancipation Proclamation, this anthology includes the speeches of slaves and doctors, men and women, the privileged and the self-made. Although largely of one voice regarding civil rights, radically different ideas, tactics, and strategies are presented.
