BECOMING KING Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Making of a National Leader: Civil Rights and the Struggle for Black Equality in the Twentieth Century

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andrew L. Barnes

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

This book is destined to become an instant classic. Troy Jackson’s thorough and gripping biography demonstrates Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, growth as a person and a leader. Andrew L. Barnes’s performance enhances the experience. Capturing an orator like King on audio is a daunting task, and the listener will appreciate Barnes’s agility as he handles each aspect of the book with apparent ease. Whether he’s describing an event or a meeting or delivering one of King’s speeches, Barnes excels at keeping the story moving and the listener engaged. The book itself is a superb and highly detailed account of the Civil Rights leader that reveals much more about King than many of us knew before. D.J.S.
