Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dion Graham

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

As Walter Burke's young mother comes to grips with the horrors of brain cancer, Walter and his little sister are drawn into the 1950s Civil Rights Movement in their home city of Birmingham, Alabama, even marching with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The children fight for their quality of life as their mother swiftly loses hers. Dion Graham sounds perfectly at ease with the Burke family; Walter's best friend, Lamar; and their collective struggles for equal rights and peaceful lives. Dion Graham's narration especially shines as he voices Walter's recollections of these events from the battlefields of Vietnam some years later. In both writing and performance, despair and determination march together, inseparable from circumstance. R.P.L.
