28 DAYS Moments in Black History that Changed the World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dion Graham, William Jackson Harper, Zainab Jah, January LaVoy, Robin Miles, Lizan Mitchell, Jonathan Earl Peck, Carter Woodson Redwood

Children Ages 4-6 • 30 mins. • Unabridged • © 2015

This history of black culture performed by a talented ensemble of eight voices is a listening treasure. Cleverly presented in 29 short episodes, the verse and soundscape elucidate a chronological account of events and people who played small and monumental roles in the history of black America—black astronauts, political leaders, business entrepreneurs. Listeners can enjoy the day-by-day entries or hear the evolving details that bring us to our first black president. The cast of Dion Graham, William Jackson Harper, Zainab Jah, January LaVoy, Robin Miles, Lizan Mitchell, Jonathan Earl Peck, and Carter Redwood give variety and energy to each piece. They bring out the engaging little-known details, historical facts, and accomplishments with clear-eyed honesty, curiosity, and often pride. Enjoy with the stunning illustrations of Shane W. Evans in the hardcover book, but the audio program easily stands alone for families or students to enjoy and delight in what they learn. R.F.W.
