Landon Woodson's quiet confidence is a great vehicle for expressing the perspective that permeates this important audiobook about racism. The young actor connects in a balanced way with the author's mission to call out the realities of slavery and the rationales, denials, and hypocracy associated with its continuing effects on African-Americans. Woodson's matter-of-fact tone helps listeners absorb these realities with equanimity. The author is a novelist, essayist, and literature teacher who says race is an obsolete concept, a loosely applied type of class distinction. Based on meticulous historical research, his latest book is an accessible account of racial subjugation and marginalization as it's been practiced across the globe. The blend of this balanced writing and the narrator's approach make this a go-to audio for anyone desiring enlightenment about these issues.
