A Time for Silence: Booker T. Washington in Atlanta.
Heath, Robert L.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v64 n4 p385-99 Dec 1978
Discusses the rhetoric of silence as an alternative to participation in a discussion of social issues, particularly when participation confirms the efforts of those who seek social control. Concludes that Booker T. Washington should have employed the strategy of silence when invited to address an exposition in Atlanta in 1895. (JMF)
