NO ASHES IN THE FIRE Coming of Age Black and Free in America

by | Read by Darnell L. Moore

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With a style that evokes James Baldwin, activist Darnell Moore explores his life, religion, and society, attempting to reconcile the internalized agitation of black identity with the cultural fear of people of color that is widely on display in America. He is deliberate, both in his prose and his delivery. His soft, deep voice pulls listeners into this beautiful and engaging memoir about a black man coming to terms with his place in a racist society, his sexuality, his relationship with God, and his ability to impact that world. His voice conveys so much emotion without being emotional as he shares memories of kids almost burning him alive as a child, a shattering childhood Christmas, and his attempted suicide. The result is an audiobook that will strike a nerve with listeners. L.E. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
