Speaking with a quiet dignity that connects listeners to her, Barnwell explains that "it takes real courage to be yourself . . . the stories, prayers, hopes, and dreams of our ancestors can give us this courage." Singing in a powerful voice that finds its roots in the courage and ingenuity of her ancestors, Barnwell conveys the African-American experience that shaped her life in a way that makes listeners from other backgrounds see it more deeply. Barnwell moves smoothly between stories, poems, and songs. Her storytelling is musical in its variety of expression and lively in a way that illuminates layers of meaning. R.M.
