This is an active learning, Civil Rights-themed course. You’ll not only learn how to be a better speaker, you will do so while studying one of the greatest rhetoric-driven social movement examples. We will read about public speaking (using the Art of Public Speaking text) and the movement (using the Eyes on the Prize text), give several speeches, and travel to Civil Rights locations near (Hattiesburg) and far (Birmingham).
