Barbara C. Jordan--selected speeches by Barbara Jordan( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, editor Sandra Parham (Archivist, Barbara Jordan Archives) has selected speeches that give readers an insight into Jordan's philosophy on ethics, diversity, and government at a time when our citizens have serious questions about all three. Although printed speeches may not adequately express Jordan's abilities as a consummate orator, they do share her determination, tenacity, and absolute sense of integrity and ethical responsibility. In fact, her emphasis on ethics in government could be summed up in these words: "Just because it's legal, doesn't make it right!""--Jacket
