Title:Speech, Call for a return to "family-oriented values"
Date:n.d., 2007

Five pages of a typewritten speech that expresses a desire to return to family-oriented values. The speech emphasizes that family-oriented values enabled African Americans to achieve social, economic and political progress after the end of slavery and during segregation; describes the gains in civil rights African Americans achieved between World War II and 1965; cautions against the collapse of the African American family; and proposes a commitment to work ethic, morality, and education.
