Great Speeches But ...
Great speeches but who are the speakers? In more than half the speeches, the speakers are not introduced. Not is there text indicating who the speakers are. Would be better to have names of speakers rather than chapters in chronological order. How are we supposed to know who the speakers?

Great African Americans? Not the greatest speeches
Assortment of speeches. Sometimes, less is more. Better if at least half were removed.
