Joe Morton has a strong, deep, and serious voice, and he presents this compelling book about the American Civil Rights Movement, 1965 to 1968, with gravitas. Morton carefully communicates the tense moments in the struggle. There is some limited voice characterization that works well. This work is Branch's third in a three-volume series. The earlier volumes received many awards, and this work has already attracted critical acclaim. In this volume, Branch presents a richly textured portrait of the movement, with special attention on the struggle for voting rights, as well as the involvement of key political figures of the time, such as President Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
