Biography & Memoir • 37 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This is a listen for anyone wanting to learn about one of America's most significant historical figures. Blight's biography was one of the best reviewed books of 2018. Prentice Onayemi's narration reveals why. Reading in a mostly measured, calm, almost soothing tone, he captivates, enthralls, engages, and, at times, enrages. But when needed, Onayemi evokes the drama and emotion of the turbulent times in which Douglass lived. He traveled tirelessly in the cause of righteousness and never lost sight of the potential of the American ideal. Onayemi's narration captures the essence of Douglass's life and message--and leaves one wondering what Douglass would make of our nation today.
