Grammy Award winner T Bone Burnett combines a selection of his songs with his reflections on America's history of racial injustice. New productions of relevant songs from his vast catalog sound raw and give the audiobook a gritty feel. Equally intense are his song lyrics and spoken comments, both rough-hewn expressions of his outrage about racial atrocities and injustices. He feels strongly that Southern culture denies the realities, minimizes the damage done, and lacks urgency about correcting the problems. While his fans will accept the relentless intensity of his reading style because he's such an icon, those unfamiliar will be moved, nonetheless, by his woke sensibilities and the authentic passion behind this timely broadside. Racial justice pioneer Caroline Randall Williams delivers the brief introduction. T.W. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
