Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Brenda Pressley

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Dr. May Edward Chinn was the first African-American physician to practice in Harlem. This historical fiction depicts her life and career within the backdrop of the 1920s and the Harlem Renaissance. Brenda Pressley is an exceptional narrator. She gives a bravura performance as the many people who populated Harlem at this time. Whether being a Jamaican mother in the throes of childbirth, a slave child speaking in dialect, or a highly educated and eloquent Zora Neale Hurston, Pressley brings each vividly to life. This audiobook is a sublime combination of a good story and a great narrator. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
