Journalist Ida B. Wells-Barnett recounts the violence perpetrated by a white mob in New Orleans after two Black men were approached by white policemen in July 1900. Narrator Kristyl Dawn Tift projects Wells-Barnett's professional manner through a direct, informative tone. With few pauses, Tift enumerates the occurrences leading up to countless deaths. There is a calm urgency in her voice as she retells this action-oriented, gruesome story. When quoting certain voices, Tift provides a colloquial representation of the person being embodied. Through terms and names common to that historical period, the listener is transported back in time to witness the violence. This audiobook can be harsh to hear. However, it's an important story.
