Classics • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1930

This classic depiction of Black family life in Kansas in the 1930s is narrated with grace and skill by Jaime Lincoln Smith. The work brings the struggles and challenges of early-twentieth-century Black American experience to life, complete with Hughes's skillful use of dialect and prose. Smith deftly switches into period diction and local accents, voicing each family member so that discerning the flow of dialogue is easy and meaningful. Listeners follow young Sandy Rogers as he comes of age and witnesses his family's encounters with a racially divided America. The audiobook provides an outstanding rendition of an important Harlem Renaissance novel. C.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
