Each week, we highlight one notable speech from a group of professional speakers we participate in, including famous entertainers, authors and thought leaders. This week’s speech is from The Great Debaters film, selected by Leadership & Performance Expert Jamie Mason Cohen.

This final debate from ‘The Great Debaters’ film — a true story — needs to be seen on so many levels. If you haven’t seen the whole film, you might want to watch for greater context. Even if you haven’t seen the film, the 13-minute clip works powerfully and poignantly as a speech in terms of rhetoric, emotion, personal storytelling in context to a purpose beyond oneself, the use of humour and masterful presentation skills.

I dare you not to watch it at least twice!

—Jamie
