A FOOL'S ERRAND Creating the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the Age of Bush, Obama, and Trump

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by JD Jackson

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

JD Jackson's exemplary narration draws listeners into this account of the creation of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which is part of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. With his warm and inviting tone, Jackson fully inhabits the thoughtful and perceptive persona of the author, who was the museum's founding director, to such a degree that listeners will be convinced they are hearing the author's own voice. Especially impressive is his pacing, which is assured but leisurely enough that listeners will eagerly anticipate his next words as they are swept along the narrative of this important mission. Those interested in museum culture and development will find this listen particularly enlightening. M.J.
