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.

Excellent mix of speeches. Really enjoyed the analysis of the speeches and the background music during the interludes; portraying the era of the speeches. Just wish it was twice as long.
