Diverse Voices: An Introduction to Robert Smalls

Robert Smalls, featured in today’s episode of 28 DAYS, was so active in so many roles in American history--slave, ship's captain, Civil War hero, and five-term U.S. Congressman--that we know you’ll want to explore a variety of audiobooks addressing his times. In both his personal and public life, his experiences span much of the 19th century, from the Antebellum South, through the Civil War, and into the period of Reconstruction. Three narrators share the telling of this exciting chapter in Black history: Robin Miles, Dion Graham, and Lizan Mitchell. 

You can listen to many audiobooks featuring the lives of other notable activists and statesmen who share that era, too. You might start with LINCOLN AND DOUGLASS: AN AMERICAN FRIENDSHIP, written by eminent African American poet Nikki Giovanni and read by the also well-known actor, Danny Glover. 

THE DAY FREEDOM DIED: THE COLFAX MASSACRE, THE SUPREME COURT, AND THE BETRAYAL OF RECONSTRUCTION, by Charles Lane and read by Jim Bond

JEFFERSON’S SONS, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley and read by Adenrele Ojo
