    We Rise: Speeches by Inspirational Black Women, is a rare compilation of memorable speeches delivered by celebrated African-American women from both the past and present. Spanning decades and elucidating the fight for equality, it not only captures important pieces of black history, but reveals the struggle from a female perspective. The live recordings in this captivating collection are preceded by a short biography to introduce each speaker.

    Overall

    Production values mar what could have been an excellent educational keepsake. The female narrator who introduces the segments sounds like a bored student reading a paper which she was forced to do. The sample recording sounds much better than the combined work. This is an abridged recording but I can't find an original source to see what or who was left out. American Radio Works production is a better value.
