HELP ME TO FIND MY PEOPLE The African American Search for Family Lost in Slavery

by | Read by Robin Miles

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

History, as we are reminded by this book, is told from the perspective of those with power. Robin Miles's confident oratorical style gives the listener a sense of empowerment regarding the attempts of African-Americans to recover their family histories lost through the institution of slavery. Miles's tone is crisp, her pace steady, and her style journalistic, all of which suit the theme set out by the author. Though full of facts and minute biographical details, Miles’s evenly paced reading draws the listener into the personal aspects of these stories. She differentiates between the male and female recollections by changes in tone. She also creates successful narrative personas to delineate the journal entries, reported dialogue, and overall narrative text. M.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
