Robin Miles narrates a trio of powerful narratives written by formerly enslaved Black women who lived through the Civil War and Reconstruction. The author, Erica Armstrong Dunbar, narrates an engaging introduction and afterword for each narrative. Miles and Dunbar complement each other with gripping performances that capture the ear. The narratives are fascinating performances that encapsulate what these three icons--writer Harriet Jacobs, nurse Susie King Taylor, and journalist Ida B. Wells--experienced in their lives. The accompanying contextual discussions adopt a professorial voice while remaining accessible. Dunbar masterfully ties their lives to current events in a compelling listen that moves through time in an illuminating comparison between the two eras. J.M.M.
