FIVE DAYS The Fiery Reckoning of an American City

by | Read by Wes Moore

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In this audiobook, Baltimore native Wes Moore provides a moving and nuanced account of the 2015 Baltimore uprising in the five days after Freddie Gray was killed by police. Moore's voice spills over with emotions that range from rage to hopeful determination. He delves into the intersecting stories of several Baltimoreans involved in the uprising, including a Black police captain, a public defender, a young activist, and the owner of the Baltimore Orioles. Moore's narration, though passionate and engrossing, is mostly straightforward, rather than taking on the persona of each person. This choice keeps the audiobook firmly grounded in his thoughtful and compassionate journalism. Part history and part reckoning, this is a must-listen for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the history of police brutality in the U.S. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
