by | Read by Nell Irvin Painter

Contemporary Culture • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Prolific American historian and artist Nell Irvin Painter performs a lifetime of her works, gathered together in one collection for the first time. Painter's explorations of race, politics, and the shaping of American identity are covered in these essays, which include figures such as Carrie Buck, who became a symbol of the right to bodily autonomy; journalist/abolitionist Martin Delany; and writer Toni Morrison. Painter's work in both writing and art examines a nation that is often at war with itself. She is a talented teacher who makes her performance in this audiobook sound like an interesting series of lectures. Her narration is done with wisdom and emotional intelligence. Combined with the pdf of her artwork, this audiobook gives listeners the full experience of Painter's creative mind. V.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
