Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by JD Jackson, Jon Meacham

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This stirring audiobook offers a memorable merging of author, subject, and narrator. JD Jackson voices John Lewis with an authentic and nuanced nod to his rural Alabama roots. He adroitly does the New England intonations of JFK and RFK and the drawls of LBJ and George Wallace. But it is the powerful retelling of John Lewis’s life’s work fighting to bring civil and voting rights to Black Americans that stays with the listener. Famed for overcoming the beatings he received and his many arrests for sit-ins, Lewis comes across in Meacham’s crystalline prose as a man who prevailed through nonviolence and an abiding religious faith. The late congressman added a fitting afterword to this audiobook. A.D.M.
