REVOLUTION The Sixties Trilogy, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stacey Aswad, Francois Battiste, JD Jackson, Robin Miles and a Full Cast

Children Ages 10+ • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Employing an audio documentary approach, the second of Wiles’s Sixties Trilogy focuses on Mississippi during the Freedom Summer of 1964. Narrator Stacey Aswad—sounding by turns youthfully petulant, excited, and fearful—captures the spirit of 12-year-old Sunny, who is struggling to come to terms with her newly blended family, yearning for her own mother, and learning to rise above the bigotry of well-loved family members and friends. Raymond, an African-American boy who is frustrated with waiting for life in the Jim Crow South to improve, is skillfully portrayed by Francois Battiste’s accurate inflection and pacing. Voices of additional characters, news clips, songs of the Civil Rights movement, and other background material adding to the period authenticity are read by Robin Miles and JD Jackson, among others. S.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
