Janina Edwards delivers these intense narratives of Black women, starting with African women brought to the Americas before 1619 and continuing through late-twentieth-century figures. In compiling these empowering stories of women during 10 historical eras, the authors provide a fast-moving account of how Black women brought here used their ingenuity and connections with other women to persevere against overwhelming obstacles. The intensity of what they endured is riveting. Edwards delivers the narratives with an impressive palette of accents and a level of swagger that sounds right for these truths. With the audible empathy she feels for this history, she is a big part of why this work succeeds in audio. It's a necessary listening experience that adds dignity and human texture to the Black experience. T.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
