Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kevin R. Free, JD Jackson, Sullivan Jones, Heather Alicia Simms, Bahni Turpin

History • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Kevin R. Free leads an exceptional ensemble cast in delivering William Still's landmark historical document of American slavery, oppression, and freedom. Still was a conductor on the Underground Railroad, a system of secret passageways providing people a way to freedom from slavery during the 1800s. Still's historical accounts, originally published in 1872, are presented here in a powerful new listening experience. Free performs the majority of the audiobook, providing listeners the history and background, while a stellar ensemble performs the voices of the people seeking freedom. The impact is almost overwhelming. The performances bring these lived experiences into greater consciousness. Listeners are given important insights into U.S. history, as well as a better understanding of who we are as a nation today. S.P.C.
