HAVING OUR SAY The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Iona Morris

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

The Delany sisters are part of America, and their book is an enduring portrait of our country’s story. Through their words runs a history of African-Americans, women, Southerners and the Harlem Renaissance. Iona Morris magnificently delivers an array of participants in this account. Most important, her talent enables the listener to distinguish between the two sisters. She includes convincing Northern and Southern dialects. Though there are explanatory notes throughout the oral history, Morris never lets it impede the flow of the text. The highlight of the work is a closing interview with Bessie and Sadie. This presentation is a kind of spiritual experience and should not be overlooked by libraries or individual listeners. S.G.B.
