Guy Lockard takes the mic as narrator while Nile Bullock voices high school student Miles Morales, who's "Boriqua and Black and Brooklyn as hell." He's also Spider-Man. But this adventure finds Miles stuck in in-school suspension after leading a protest against his racist history teacher's revisionist lessons. Even in suspension, though, Miles's Spidey-sense tells him something's really, really wrong beneath the respectable veneer of Brooklyn Visions Academy. Lockard's baritone carries listeners through prose so rhythmic that it flows right into Miles's poems. These are read by Bullock in an urgent tenor that captures both Miles's earnest idealism and deep frustration. There isn't much web-slinging, but listeners may not notice as they're caught up in this timely tale of one battlefield in America's war of ideas.
