American RadioWorks presents Say It Plain: A Century of Great African-American Speeches
The visceral impact of history's great speechmakers is at the heart of Say It Plain. This new American RadioWorks documentary highlights a selection of landmark sermons, speeches, and broadcasts by remarkable Africa-American speakers. Say It Plain delves into a vibrant tradition of African-American oratory that connects figures as different in style and ideology as Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey, Shirley Chisholm and Julian Bond. It's a vivid portrait of black Americans exhorting the nation to make good on its democratic promises.

Mandela: An Audio History
Mandela: An Audio History tells the story of the struggle against apartheid through rare sound recordings, the voice of Nelson Mandela himself, as well as those who fought with him, and against him.

Thurgood Marshall: Before the Court
In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first African American appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. But Marshall had already earned a place in history, as the leader of the legal campaign against racial segregation, which culminated in the landmark Brown v. Board decision. This project traces Marshall's life as a lawyer and justice.

Remembering Jim Crow
For much of the 20th century, African-Americans endured a legal system in the American South that was calculated to segregate and humiliate them.
