Classics • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1923

Narrators Bahni Turpin, Mirron Willis, and Lisa Reneé Pitts work together to create a vocal chorus that is equal to these vivid short stories written by one of the luminaries of the Harlem Renaissance. Listeners will be grateful for this talented cast, who capture the diverse characters in these narratives. From young women forced by necessity into prostitution and then childbirth to white employers who become intertwined in the lives of their help, the characters in this powerful collection still resonate. Willis lends his baritone to the judging, gossipy townspeople who feature prominently in many of the stories. Turpin and Pitts are as capable as ever in these female-centric works, which provide a sensory experience of African-American lives in the 1920s.
