Journalist Dani McClain describes how she prepared her daughter for a society in which black children don't enjoy the same positive expectations and privileges as others. As the author narrates with professional poise, her clarity and somber tone fit the character of her reportage, which describes the broad array of injustices and social burdens African-Americans face daily. Though the world she keenly observes is full of inequity, McClain's calm performance allows listeners to consider the societal insults and obstacles she describes, rather than be distracted by a more reactive performance. This is a moving glimpse of one mother's thoughtful parenting, a learning experience that succeeds because the focus is less on blame and more on the ways a parent can help a young black child develop a resilient and self-affirming approach to life.
