Bill Cosby invokes the messages of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., in calling African-Americans to action against poverty and violence. His book is part of a community discussion effort, with participants' "call outs" providing some of its most powerful moments. Cosby's words, written with psychiatric expert Alvin F. Poussaint, are read by CCH Pounder. Listeners will hear Cosby's style coming through her restrained but heartfelt reading. The message of self-reliance sometimes gets bogged down in psychological talk and sheer scope but always shows Cosby's concern and hope for a better future. Cosby's message is meant to spark discussion, not talk show back-and-forth, but actual exchanges within the African-American community to lead to change.
