THE RACE BEAT The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening of a Nation

by | Read by Richard Allen

Contemporary Culture • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This book explores how America's mainstream media awakened to the nation's racial issues and how they helped transform the U.S. during the Civil Rights era. The authors set the stage by briefly recounting the history of America's black newspapers and showing how WWII set the stage for the social changes of the 1950s and 1960s. Richard Allen is an able reader who offers a blend of gravitas and lightheartedness. He effectively varies his tone, depending on the material. One small problem with his reading, however, is that he occasionally pauses at awkward moments within a sentence, almost as if he were turning the pages of the book.
