Hearing essays and reflections from Congressman John Lewis's 2012 book gives one a sense of the old and the new. Keith David's warm baritone projects great equanimity and power--which are exactly what inform Lewis's recollections. Lewis was one of the original Freedom Riders in 1960 and has continued as a Civil Rights leader and advocate throughout his life, which includes 17 terms in the U.S. House. David's clear and finely paced delivery lets listeners absorb the details of history that Lewis recounts, and his narrative style delivers Lewis's rallying cry with effective emphasis and thoughtful passion. There's an appealing mix of sermon and campaign speech in the discussion. Listening in stages with time to reflect between the chapters has merit.
