How words can empower and inspire

A powerful perspective on important events with speeches and letters of those who were there. A very important work for those who seek a deeper understanding of the United States and it’s people. Well read - I sped it to 1.25 because it is a long read - but the different voices gave clarity to what was being quoted. Excellent writing - as soon as one story lingered a bit too long, another would start. Kept my attention to the end.
