IN THE SHADOW OF STATUES A White Southerner Confronts History

by | Read by Mitch Landrieu

History • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Landrieu retraces his own political and personal life from the days when his father was mayor of New Orleans to his own ascendance to the mayorship and his decision to take down Confederate statues in the city. Landrieu narrates with a steady and consistent cadence throughout the production. His raspy timbre and friendly tone invite listeners in as he comes to grapple with the history of the South, white supremacy, and decisions that resulted in threats to himself, his family, and friends. Landrieu shows listeners that doing right may not be easy but that, in the end, just causes are necessary to uphold the virtues of one's city, state, and country.
