Summary
"If the words and delivery are powerful, they echo down the centuries." - Maya Angelou. The spoken word has been used with immense power throughout history for good and evil, as this examination of the effectiveness of oratory makes clear. Examples of effective oratory include speeches by 14th-century tax protester John Ball, 19th-century slave Sojourner Truth, and 20th-century preacher Martin Luther King, Jr. Each speaker's technique is analyzed within the context of delivery, why the speech is being delivered, and to whom
