THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN AUDIO EXPERIENCE

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, et al.

Classics • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

If you want to know what it meant to be an African-American in the twentieth century, listen to this audiobook. A world is explicated from the 1920s and the Harlem Renaissance to the end of the century and the death of rapper Tupac Shakur. Brock Peters’s revelation of Richard Wright, the original cast of A RAISIN IN THE SUN, Nikki Giovanni explaining her poetic artistry, the black vernacular of Zora Neale Hurston perfectly rendered by Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, and Langston Hughes reading his iconic poetry all make this work a treasure. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
