FREEDOM SUMMER The Savage Season That Made Mississippi Burn and Made America a Democracy

by | Read by David Drummond

History • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This powerful account of the Civil Rights Movement focuses on the volunteers that descended on Mississippi during the summer of 1964 for the purpose of registering black voters. David Drummond's narration, like Watson's story, starts strong and remains so throughout the entire production. Drummond provides a straight narration that proves to be sensitive and animated when the story requires. The combination of well-crafted reporting and Drummond's moving performance allows the listener to become a witness to a painful and tumultuous chapter in our nation’s history. FREEDOM SUMMER will most certainly remain in the minds of listeners for some time. J.R.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
