Product Overview

An insightful analysis of key speeches by the late Texas congresswoman Barbara Jordan, this book also summarizes the events that shaped her life and views on public policy. At the center of the discussion are two of Jordan's most famous speeches: her" ""Statement on Impeachment," made before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee in July of 1974 during the Nixon impeachment hearings; and her historic Democratic National Convention keynote address, delivered at Madison Square Garden in July of 1976. The book includes an audio CD containing both speeches, and the book's appendix documents Jordan's sudden rise to national attention with excerpts from the countless letters she received from her constituents in the late 1970s.
