Nationally acclaimed educator Brandon Fleming's captivating narration enhances his moving life story, one of tenacity and life-changing moments. Listeners experience Fleming's excitement, struggle, and triumph through his performance. His childhood is punctuated with violence, including familial abuse. He excels at basketball until a devastating injury puts an end to that. College follows, where Fleming is unmotivated until he discovers the power of Black scholarship--from W.E.B. Du Bois to Cornell West. West's work inspires Fleming to pursue oration. ("I just wanted to be in front of people.") On this path, Fleming becomes a star educator, and his creativity culminates in the founding of a new summer debate program for Harvard. Fleming's skills as an orator are a perfect fit for this audiobook. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
