JACKSON, 1964 And Other Dispatches From Fifty Years of Reporting on Race in America

by | Read by Robert Fass, Calvin Trillin [Intro.]

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

This audiobook is a collection of the author's groundbreaking reporting on the Civil Rights movement, race, and racism in America since the 1960s. These articles represent some of the most riveting, immediate, and pointed writing on a subject that continues to be a major issue in American social and political life. They are written in Trillin's singular style, which is both readable and enduring. Trillin reads the introduction in a rather flat voice and leaves the rest of the book to Robert Fass, who narrates as a reporter, sticking to the facts in a low, muted voice. Fass varies his pitch and tone enough to keep the book interesting, but his performance understates the emotions in Trillin's work. A more dynamic approach would have been more effective.
