JOHN LEWIS In Search of the Beloved Community

by | Read by Jaime Lincoln Smith

Biography & Memoir • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Through this audiobook, listeners will come to see Civil Rights pioneer John Lewis as a living bridge from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., to President Barack Obama. The force behind the concept of "good trouble," Lewis was inspired to become a minister and to join the Civil Rights movement after hearing King preach over the radio. Lewis was just a boy at the time. His life, work, and accomplishments are chronicled in this biography. Jaime Lincoln Smith delivers a first-rate narration. His voice has character, but he's careful not to overshadow the text. His acting skills clearly help. When the author uses extended direct quotes, Smith alters his cadence as a kind of oral quotation marks. While the work is detailed, Smith keeps the narrative flowing smoothly and engagingly.
