Asim's fact-filled account begins with a question in Dion Graham's smooth tones: What is African-American history? Listeners are then presented with a history that starts with the slave trade and encompasses the Middle Passage, the Civil War, and the Civil Rights era on its way to the election of Barack Obama and the Black Lives Matter movement. Included is information about the places, voyages, entertainment, sports, and politics of the times. Graham's rich voice draws listeners into his recounting, while managing to seamlessly integrate the book's many separate "Get to Know" profiles of individual trailblazers, athletes, and entertainers. A marriage of quality writing and narration makes this an audiobook that should find a wide audience. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
