Summary
  • "The first African American Congresswoman elected from Texas since Reconstruction, Barbara Jordan was an electrifying public speaker. With her ethical vision of community and her passion for education and public service, she challenged the nation to reclaim constitutional ideals and adhere to moral principles. Holmes' provocative and creative work offers the first comprehensive analysis of Jordan's speeches, with particular emphasis on the ways Jordan's private moral vision informed her public work."--Jacket
