    Fanny Lou Hamer alone is worth it

    Perhaps it was my politics, by the speech by Condoleezza Rice was the least interesting. The speech by Fanny Lou Hamer is chilling. If you have never listened to her speech at the 1964 Democratic Convention, you simply must. It is one of the most difficult to listen to, because of the harrowing description of the torture she had to endure. I also recommend the speech by Barbara Jordan. She was one of the most eloquent of Congresswomen. It's too bad she was taken from us far too soon.

    A disappointment and a disservice

    Production values mar what could have been an excellent educational keepsake. The female narrator who introduces the segments sounds like a bored student reading a paper which she was forced to do. The sample recording sounds much better than the combined work. This is an abridged recording but I can't find an original source to see what or who was left out. American Radio Works production is a better value.

    Great speeches, horrible narration

    I enjoyed hearing the powerful words of some of America's most powerful leaders but the narrator who gave the biographical components was just awful. I found myself questioning if it was a real person or a computer program. As a result, I skipped the biographies for all of the orators.

    Inspiring

    Loved the speeches from Michelle Obama and Shirley Chisholm. Other speeches the audio wasn't the best or were a little boring. I learned something from each one though! I didn't like the narrator voice in between the speeches! So annoying. Fannie Lou Hamer's was a bold speech as well!

    Sistas keep handing off the baton!

    I loved the book! One because I could hear the speeches in the Sistas voice except for Sister Truth. These speeches go back in time, but they are right on time today. They are speaking of the struggle of unjust laws and a society built on oppression. As I listed to each speaker, I realized this is a relay. Each one ran her part in the relay, and she handed off the baton to another Sista. We each must run our part of the relay so our children and our children’s children will see justice for all.

    We Rise

    Narrator mispronounced Mary McLeod Bethune's name all through her intro. It would be nice if you made sure they knew how to pronounce names prior to putting themout there for us to listen to. It may be a small thing but it is still annoying to hear.

    Awesome.

    GREAT. I wonder if Ms. Rice still feels the same about her Republican Party today!
