Say it Plain, the celebrated companion to the American RadioWorks documentary which documented the great tradition of African American political speech in the twentieth century, collected the transcribed speeches of the twentieth century's leading African American cultural, literary, and political figures, many of them never before available in printed form. Following the success of that path-breaking volume, Say It Loud adds new depth to the oral and audio history of the modern struggle for racial equality and civil rights-focusing directly on the pivotal questions black America grappled with during the past three decades of struggle. With recordings made widely available here for the first time, Say It Loud includes powerful speeches by Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Angela Davis, Bayard Rustin, Martin Luther King Jr., James Cone, Toni Morrison, Cornel West, and many others.
