VOICES OF BLACK AMERICA Historical Recordings of Speeches, Poetry, Humor & Drama

by | Read by Booker T. Washington, Langston Hughes, et al.

Poetry & Drama • 1.75 hrs. • Anthology • © 2002

A compilation of voices narrates the African-American experience from 1908 to 1947. This audio book gives the impression of having been thrown together for no reason other than the fact that there were tapes of these voices available. While such recordings are important historical documents, a compilation that includes African-American political leaders, actors, vaudevillians, and poets, but no female voice and no narrator, is misdirected. The absence of a preface tying together these disparate strings leaves the listener adrift. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
