BREAKING BREAD Insurgent Black Intellectual Life

by | Read by Adenrele Ojo

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Adenrele Ojo gives an outstanding performance of a series of conversations between bell hooks and Cornel West. These two friends and colleagues discuss the complex realities of Black intellectual life. In between their conversations, hooks and West insert essays that they've written about each other, highlighting their academic achievements and mutual admiration. Ojo narrates the book beautifully, bringing a range of emotional depth to her performance of hooks and West's conversations. She creates unique voices for each author, making her narration easy to follow. But since much of the book is a dialogue, this audiobook is a missed opportunity to bring in a second narrator to perform with Ojo and enhance the listener's experience.
