In Honor of Presidents’ Day: Public Speaking Lessons from George Washington

DeFinis Communications

Presidents’ Day, also known as George Washington Day, was the first federal holiday to honor an American citizen and was initially celebrated on Washington’s actual birthday, February 22. This date places the holiday between February 15th and 21st, which makes the name “Washington’s Birthday” a misnomer, since it never lands on Washington’s actual birthday! I recently read the book Presidential Voices: Speaking Styles from George Washington to George W.

  THE WASHINGTON POST has been purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com for $250 million. Those who love newspapers rejoice today that one of the most iconic has been saved.  In hawking consumer goods and even B2B services like cloud storage, Bezos is a genius.  He goes for market share instead of the big bucks on each purchase.  And the big bucks come in bigger ways. Bezos is a hero.  Surely someone at WaPo will get the notion to have him run for U.S.

Famous Speech Friday: Josephine Baker at the March on Washington

The Eloquent Woman

I'd heard for many years that no women speakers were included at the March on Washington in 1963, the event that concluded with Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. She flew to Washington for the March and appeared for her remarks wearing her uniform from the French Resistance in World War II, a symbol of her lifelong activism. You can read the speech here , and this Washington Post article shares some of the correspondence between Baker and Martin Luther King, Jr.
