Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ossie Davis & Ruby Dee

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

The two esteemed actors narrate a look back at their lives--their beginnings apart and their lives together, including their careers, family, and involvement in social issues. Each narrates separate sections with expression, interest, passion, and humor. They speak with candor about even painful life experiences, such as racial discrimination and their experiment--which will surprise many--with "open marriage." They both keep the material fresh, which could be hard to do when talking about one's own life. This is an immensely captivating dual memoir and a real audio treasure, especially poignant since Davis has since passed away. The listener comes away with a true sense of the essence of these lives, the things that were and are important to them, and their accomplishments. M.A.M.
