In alternating chapters, five talented male voices portray 10 African-American men. This collection moves through American history from the colonial era to the present day. The diversity of voices and accents reflects the men's backgrounds with respect to places of origin and education. With fascinating accounts of familiar role models ranging from author Benjamin Banneker to Barack Obama, the narrators create compelling portraits, injecting heart and soul into the details of the biographies. But the standout is Mela Lee, whose rich, sonorous female voice narrates the introduction and the praise songs that open each chapter, bringing even more passion and reverence to the subject matter and perfectly matching the cadence of Pinkney's poetic words.
