ENTERTAINING RACE Performing Blackness in America

by | Read by Michael Eric Dyson

Contemporary Culture • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Michael Eric Dyson does a generally fine job narrating his wide-ranging look at Black performance of all types. Dyson, a minister, academic, political analyst, and radio show host (plus more!) is a polished professional speaker and conveys humor or passion as appropriate. Still, some listeners may feel his effort here occasionally sounds too much like plain old reading. He touches on dozens of topics, ranging from the singer Beyoncé to the slain Black youth Trayvon Martin, from entertainer and alleged predator Bill Cosby to the contradictions of Civil Rights hero and martyr Martin Luther King, Jr. This audiobook consists largely of Dyson's past writings and speeches. It covers many subjects, some more smoothly than others, but all are interesting and thought-provoking. G.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
