W.E.B. Du Bois's classic history of the presence and influences of African descendants in the U.S. comes to listeners in a new audiobook narrated by Arnell Powell. Powell's measured, naturalistic pace and conversational tone engage 21st-century listeners with the sociologist's 1924 narrative, giving easy access to its review of a wide range of topics: Black involvement in various American wars, the role of Black women in suffrage activities, Black visual and performing art contributions, and Black religious tenets that emphasize forgiveness and humility. The text is ideal for the audiobook format, and Powell's delivery is perfect as it lifts the text from the nearly century-old page and brings it to the contemporary listener's ears and consciousness.
