Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., has been an orator all his life.  From his boyhood, when he spoke at Easter services in St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in his hoimetown of Atlanta, Georgia, through his years as a civil rights activist and lawyer, from president and chief executive-officer of the NationalmUrban League to the preent, he has tried to follow former New York Times columnist Wiliam Safire's definition of the purpose of a speech:  "to inspire, to ennoble, to instruct, to rally, to lead."These speeches address audiences aas diverse as the National Urban League and Japan's Keidanren (that nation's most powerful business association), the graduating class of U Penn and mourners gathered to celebrate the life of Thurgood Marshall.  Each is introduced and placed in the context of its time.  Yet what is sriking are the consstant themes that have marked Jordan's public life:  his vision of social justice as an ongoing necessity, his understanding that legal equality is not the same as real equality, and his view that if we do not strive to do better, to test the upper limits of our own expectations, then we will have failed to fully seize the opportunity afforded to us.Whether addressing an audience of thousands in a televised speech, or just a handful ina poorly filled church, Jordan's wors resound.  He is stirring, impassioned, convincing, and direct.  Unafraid to call his friends to account if they disappoint him, or to make brave and sriking comparisons--as he did after 9/11 by reminding Americans of  the homegrown terriorism of the Jim Crow era--Jordan takes his place as one of the great speakers if his era, an inheritor of the tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr., Roy Wilkins, Whitney M. Young, Jr., Adam Clayton Powell, abd the Rev. Gardner C.TGaylor., Public Affairs, 2008

Black Americans have always relied on the oral tradition--storytelling, preaching, and speechmaking--to assert their rights and preserve and pass on their history and culture. In the pulpit, courtroom, or cotton field, they have understood the power of words, distinctively delivered, to educate and inspire. Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., one of the nation's finest speakers, imbibed this tradition as a young man and has given it his own unique inflection from his work on the civil rights front lines, to the National Urban League, to positions of influence at the highest level of business and politics. A friend and confidant to presidents, Jordan has never forgotten the men and women--from Ruby Hurley to Wiley Branton to Gardner C. Taylor to Martin Luther King, Jr.--whose oratorical skill in service to social justice deeply influenced him. Their examples and voices, reflected in Vernon's own, make this book both a history and an embodiment of black speech at its finest: Full of emotion, controlled force, righteous indignation, love of country, and awe in front of the God-given challenges ahead.
