A QUANTUM LIFE My Unlikely Journey from the Street to the Stars

by | Read by Hakeem Oluseyi

Biography & Memoir • 9.75 hrs, • Unabridged • © 2021

Astrophysicist Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi narrates his own compelling memoir, exploring his journey from a precocious, uncertain youth to an accomplished, assured adult. Growing up in the American South in the 1970s and '80s, Oluseyi was waylaid on his path to academia by family instability, economic insecurity, and educational inequities. His smooth baritone invites listeners to share a journey that he notes could have taken a much less fulfilling route. Oluseyi's conversational writing infuses his tone as he expands upon stories of the people and experiences that shaped him as a Black man. As Oluseyi struggled with his studies in a predominantly white graduate program and with addiction, invaluable mentoring relationships sustained him, a point he emphasizes. This engaging production will especially inspire aspiring scientists. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
