Most people have a vague recollection of Dred Scott's connection to the Civil War, but few people remember the specifics. Never again! Peter Jay Fernandez is a magnificent Dred Scott. He captures the decency of this man, a slave to the Blow family as they moved around the South and into Missouri, desperately trying to eke out a life in the world of white landowners. Even in the years following his sale and the 11 years spent at the mercy of court decisions, Scott articulates the injustices he experiences, all the while persevering to better his family's existence. Fernandez senses the soul of Scott and brings his emotions to light. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
