Adopting a slow and even pace, Tay Zonday narrates this twentieth-century history of the African-American Great Migration. The author focuses on politics and the crimes against blacks in the Southern states. Blair Imani's bright tones add a personal touch to the introduction and conclusion, connecting this historic migration to her own family. Patrisse Cullors's grave reading of the foreword contrasts sharply with Imani's delivery. Both Imani and Cullors recount historic events within their grandmothers' lifetimes. All the narrators, particularly Zonday, speak slowly and clearly as they explain how and why black Americans moved across the country and the panoply of lawsuits that were part and parcel of the Civil Rights movement. Well suited for YA and adult audiences, the audiobook concludes with a recitation of the glossary and biographical sketches. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
