Contemporary Oratory: A Lens for Our Time.
Younger, Jan J.; Meussling, Vonne
Using rhetorical and historical approaches, this paper examines speech excerpts of four speakers active during the civil rights movement in the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The paper's first section discusses Malcolm X and a speech delivered two months before his assassination; the second section studies James Allen speaking on school desegregation in his capacity as United States Commissioner of Education. The civil rights oratory of Father James Groppi of Milwaukee is examined in the third section, and the fourth section analyzes the speeches of the civil rights activist and Georgia legislator, Julian Bond. Fifty-nine notes are included. (SR)
