After a moody jazz riff, Sidik Fofana and a stand-out cast of performers transport listeners to the Banneker Terrace apartments in Harlem. Written in vibrant Black American vernacular, these witty, sad, uplifting stories are ideal for audio. Joniece Abbott-Pratt's Mimi is a beautician behind on the rent. Fofana's Swan might mess up because of a visitor. André Santana's Darius tries to earn funds by offering therapy instead of prostitution. Bahni Turpin's Ms. Dallas is a classroom aide bossed too often by a Harvard-educated teacher. DePre Owens's Kandese manages a candy-selling ring of girls. Nile Bullock's Najee and pals dance for tips in the subway. Jade Wheeler's Quanneisha handles residents she doesn't like. Dominic Hoffman's Mr. Murray earns money playing chess. They're all unforgettable. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
