Portland State University just discovered new life through history

 

Last week Portland State University made headlines after revealing decades of speeches that had been tucked away in their library’s archives, out of sight, out of mind, until now. Some of the greatest minds of our time — leaders, artists, activists — can be heard speaking at PSU online now. Check out Robert F. Kennedy, Toni Morrison, Allen Ginsberg, and a ton of other voices here.

      I know, right?! I got chills listening to the Toni Morrison talk. She’s brilliant.

      • I just read that the reason you should consider reading your work publicly is because “7% of understanding is generated by words, 38% by tone of voice, and 55% by body language.” I think the characteristics of the authors voices added to their tone of voices makes that 38 a much higher percentage.
