Format: Hardcover
Not only is this a collection of inspiring and significant speeches given by Barbara Jordan, one of America's most amazing public figures, but it's also a DVD that lets you watch and listen to this commanding woman whose voice was called by political colleagues, "the voice of God." A treasure.

Format: Hardcover
Barbara Jordan had a very eye opening way of telling the truth. Her spirituality in politics is needed today. Where is it? Someone needs to bring this type of investigative and "telling it like it is" to the political arena today.

Every young man and woman "coming into his/her own" should read this wonderful book. Barbara Jordan (book) is not about race, gender, special interests and other discriminating elements. The book is a wonderful insight into the eloquent and beautiful woman who rose above all to inspire men and women or all races, interests, religions and beliefs in pursuit of truth and right.

Take the time to share this book with the young people in your life -- reading the truths aloud. If you can find a video of her delivering a speech, share that also.
