Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Phylicia Rashad, January LaVoy

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This audiobook should cement the idea that Coretta Scott King was herself a major civil rights leader, in addition to being married to an icon in the field. Dictated during the final year of her life, the book gives context and background to familiar events and sheds light on Coretta's struggle to continue her husband's work while carving out a presence of her own. Phylicia Rashad narrates the bulk of this audiobook with January LaVoy, and both do a superb job. Rashad's insistent voice and gentle tone reflect both the strength and quiet dignity that characterized King's life. Rashad varies her tone and intonation and pauses effectively, urging the audiobook forward and keeping it interesting and vital. The result is a reason to revisit the life of an extraordinary woman.
