Following Say It Plain, a collection of speeches that provides “a sweeping perspective on evolving issues of black identity in the struggle for equality” (Booklist). In “full-throated public oratory, the kind that can stir the soul”, Say It Plain collected and transcribed speeches by some of the twentieth century’s leading African American cultural, literary, and political figures. Many of the speeches were never before available in printed form (Minneapolis Star-Tribune). Following the success of that groundbreaking volume, the Say It Loud! book adds new depth to the history of the modern struggle for racial equality and civil rights—focusing directly on the pivotal questions black America grappled with during the past four decades of resistance. With recordings unearthed from libraries and sound archives, and made widely available here for the first time, Say It Loud! includes powerful speeches by Malcolm X, Angela Davis, Martin Luther King Jr., James H. Cone, Toni Morrison, Colin Powell, and many others. Bringing the rich immediacy of the spoken word to a vital historical and intellectual tradition, Say It Loud! illuminates the diversity of ideas and arguments pulsing through the black freedom movement.

African American Communist B.D. Amis was a major figure in the black freedom struggle during the two decades between the world wars. At that time, the American Communist Party (CPUSA) played a significant role in fighting for the rights of African Americans. Amis was part of the small circle of black radicals leading the struggle for workers' rights and racial justice. This anthology of his key writings and speeches reveals the deep commitment to the working class by his generation of African American Marxists. His classics, such as 'Lynch Justice at Work' and 'They Shall Not Die!, ' as well as his speech nominating William Z. Foster for president at the 1936 CPUSA Convention in Chicago, are included. This work also features important documents penned by Amis and found in the former Soviet archives and in the private holdings of the Amis Family. It also includes many of Amis' theoretical works found in international documents, such as the CPUSA's International Press Correspondence, and a selected bibliography on the research scholarship pertaining to African Americans and communism

Speeches are in themselves an art. Everyone cannot make speeches. They can of course address the people through words, but they cannot be called speeches. Moreover all the speeches that have been delivered are not good. What then is the quality required for the words to form a good speech. Great speeches are not time bound. They are eternal rather they have everlasting impact; very often excerpts from them are quoted by other speakers; thus making them timeless. Some of the speeches included in the book resulted in assassina-tion; execution and war. One of the speeches turned to be very prophetic. It was Martin Luther King’s speech—I’ve been to the Mountaintop, delivered the evening before he was assassinated. Reading the speeches one gains immensely from the contents. It gives an insight to the time, person who delivered it and the audience it was addressed to. The speaker comes alive through his speeches. Therefore it is fruitful to read the speeches and get to know the speaker through them. This book I am sure will enlighten the reader and broaden his/her outlook and perceive the orator and his time in a new light.
