Speech Texts

From the Series:

The Speeches and Media series consists primarily of speech texts, mostly from Culbertson’s radio broadcasts during his 1951 race for mayor. Although he spoke dozens of times on behalf of the NAACP, it appears most of these speeches were not drafted ahead of time. He wrote in 1957, “I find a written speech loses some of its spark and sparkle that one can give an extemporaneous speech. I have heretofore almost been speaking off the cuff.” The series also includes his letters to the editor on various topics, and public service announcements and advertisements run by Culbertson.
