Narrator Joshua Mackey's spirited delivery enhances this riveting audiobook. The Groveland Four were African-American men who were falsely accused of raping a white woman in 1949. The violence perpetrated upon them by the criminal justice system included murder, torture, and imprisonment--with two of them being sentenced to death. Listeners will meet Josh Venkataraman and his mother, Barbara, as they seek to clear the names of the men; and Carol Greenlee, the daughter of one of the men, who spent her life searching for the truth. In telling this story, Mackey encouragingly presents a primer on how to pursue an action, when to proceed, and how to withstand obstacles. Listeners will rejoice to learn that the railroaded men, all no longer living, have finally been exonerated. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
