Narrator Dion Graham's calm, confident voice takes middle-grade listeners through an introduction to a turbulent time in American history. Henry Gates and Tonya Bolden's title is a clear and lucid primer to America at the end of the Civil War, during Reconstruction, and up to the beginning of Jim Crow segregation. The audiobook version omits the many documents included in the text while delivering a smoothly flowing narrative. Graham's assured tones explain important people and events, such as PLESSY V. FERGUSON and the Dred Scott case, leaving young listeners with a better understanding of the lives of freedmen and women in the wake of the Civil War. Justly expressing outrage at these people's tenuous and changing rights, this audiobook is all too reflective of our current times. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
