OUR KIND OF PEOPLE Inside America's Black Upper Class

by | Read by Peter Francis James

Contemporary Culture • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Peter Francis James reads this lengthy audiobook with clarity and an even pace. James's many vocal characterizations also enliven the text. While the reading and production are never less than professional, they are more workmanlike than exciting. The book itself is interesting as it presents a part of America that is little known. Lawrence Otis Graham, who by lineage, is part of the black upper class, describes the upper-class social groups, upper-class black neighborhoods, black professional groups, and distinguished black colleges. The book presents the social lives of successful African American lawyers, doctors, and businessman, revealing the vibrancy of the black community in face of racism and legal obstacles. M.L.C.
