MARCH ON! The Day My Brother Martin Changed The World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lynn Whitfield

Children Ages 8+ • 25 min. • Unabridged • © 2008

Farris shares intimate details of her brother, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and narrator Lynn Whitfield brings an immediate connection to the memoir. Her gentle voice speaks directly and firmly as she deepens our understanding of the person behind the name and the headlines. Her emotion is palpable as she describes the moment King looked out from his hotel room at the "patchwork of people" spread out on the National Mall during the March on Washington. From a slow, measured beginning, Whitfield speeds up with the momentum of the march. Her rising voice speaks King's famous words with the pride Farris intends. Whitfield’s heartfelt narration makes that remarkable day fresh again for young listeners. Selections from King's speech and from freedom songs add to the production. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
