From Theodore Roosevelt to Barack Obama, from Gandhi to Mandela, the most significant speeches of the modern era

Whether the rousing words of Winston Churchill, the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Salman Rushdie’s denouncement of his fatwa, or the optimism of Barack Obama, speeches shape the way we understand ourselves and those around us like never before.
