In a warm, conversational tone, narrator Janina Edwards guides listeners through this aptly titled survey of black American excellence. Ranging from the familiar (athletes, inventors, civil rights leaders) to the less widely known (entrepreneurs, beauty innovators, and environmentalists), the collected mini-biographies are grouped by subject area. But this is no dry history lecture. Rather, Edwards's approachable, engaging narration gives each section the feel of a podcast episode, making the audiobook well suited to sporadic listeners who prefer short bursts of information. Even those who are already well versed in African-American history will come away from this listening experience feeling inspired to dive deeper into the lives of the fascinating, accomplished Americans featured within.
