Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Vernon E. Jordan, Jr.

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Jordan came to national attention as a civil rights leader--head of the Voter Education Project, the United Negro College Fund, and the Urban League. He is now a prominent corporate attorney and an advisor to such political figures as former President Bill Clinton. This memoir takes us from his childhood in Atlanta, Georgia, through the early 1980s. This may be a case where listening is better than reading. Jordan has a rich and melodious voice; he reads clearly, and where needed, with much emotion. It's hard to imagine a better reader of his sometimes humorous, sometimes painful, but always moving story of life before, during, and since the Civil Rights movement. R.E.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2003 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
