1968 Today's Authors Explore a Year of Rebellion, Revolution, and Change

by | Read by Jeff Cummings, Adenrele Ojo

Children Ages 10+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrators Jeff Cummings and Adenrele Ojo give refreshing energy to 14 wide-ranging essays about the global upheaval and social shifts of the year 1968. Both narrators provide a scholarly tone to the broad- reaching discussion of social movements like the Cultural Revolution and the Prague Spring. They strike an introspective tone for the more personal stories, one focusing on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, assassination and another reveling in the freedom of riding bikes across the country. Elizabeth Partridge's poem "Nightly News," woven throughout, captures the mounting body counts of the War in Vietnam. Though sophisticated and balanced, the diversity of this anthology suffers some with only two narrators. Overall, though, the authors add helpful context to a year bursting with newsworthy moments fit for comparison to our own time. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
