JUST US An American Conversation

by | Read by Janina Edwards

Contemporary Culture • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Janina Edwards delivers the latest essay collection from poet and cultural critic Claudia Rankine with nuanced and confident pacing. These pieces take listeners into Rankine’s personal spheres of family, friendship, work, and travel as she considers the behaviors arising from white privilege—and occasions of white consciousness—presented to her, and endemic in America's social fabric. Edwards distinguishes Rankine’s reflections and conclusions about our sociopolitical present from her reports of specific conversations with her white husband, white women friends, white strangers she meets in airports, and more. Insightfully and invitingly presented by both author and narrator, this audiobook would make an excellent catalyst for group discussion by socially engaged listeners of every race.
