Rhett Samuel Price offers a solid narration of the power of education in this fascinating story of two early-nineteenth-century African-American men, James McCune Smith and Henry Highland Garnet. Their mothers were former slaves, and they grew up to meet heroes of the American Revolution and blaze trails in scholarship. Price carries the listener along nicely, varying his tone to capture their moments of pride, frustration, and anger. In quoting direct material, he alters his voice, giving listeners clear cues. The audiobook also chronicles the Mulberry Street New York African Free School, a groundbreaking endeavor, and the debate over educating free black Americans or resettling them in Africa.
