One of the nation’s finest orators to speak at the New-York Historical Society

Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., discusses the power of the oral tradition and his own life in speaking.  Tuesday, March 31st, 6:30 p.m. at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West at 77th Street.
Make It Plain: A Life in Speaking
African Americans have long relied on the oral tradition of storytelling, preaching, and speechmaking to inspire, educate, and preserve their history and culture. Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., one of the nation’s finest speakers, imbibed this tradition as a young man and has never forgotten the men and women whose oratorical skill in service to social justice deeply influenced him. Their examples and voices, reflected in his own, make this program both a history and an embodiment of that oral tradition at its finest.
Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., is a senior managing director of Lazard Frères & Co., LLC. He was previously president and chief executive officer of the National Urban League, executive director of the United Negro College Fund, Inc., and director of the Voter Education Project of the Southern Regional Council. His latest book is Make it Plain: A Life in Speaking.
