IT WAS ALL A DREAM A New Generation Confronts the Broken Promise to Black America

by | Read by Shayna Small

Contemporary Culture • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Shayna Small's narration is empathetic, honest, and direct. She lends her voice to a series of black millennials who believe that the cultural shift signaled by the Obama presidency has failed to materialize. Allen's audiobook presents interviews with those who continue to face pervasive, ingrained cultural barriers in their search for the "American Dream." Despite taking on multiple degrees and additional debt and experiencing the "black tax" (having to work exponentially harder than their white peers), they find themselves in an age of growing inequality. A student athlete, a coal miner, a young conservative on campus--many voices are represented. Small delivers each with clarity and skill, creating an evocative audiobook.
