NINE DAYS The Race to Save Martin Luther King Jr.'s Life and Win the 1960 Election

by | Read by Bill Andrew Quinn

History • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Steady-voiced Bill Andrew Quinn narrates this in-depth reporting on a moment in history like a newscaster--he is clear, concise, accentless, and engaged. Martin Luther King, Jr., the emerging nonviolent leader of the Civil Rights movement, is jailed in Atlanta for nine tense, terrifying days. Quinn brings to life not only Dr. King's days in prison but also the political environment of the 1950s and the all-important 1960 election as Senators John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon vie for the Black vote. Variations in pacing and tone replicate the reading of documents. Quinn uses a subtle shift in accent for the Kennedys and an increase in pitch for Coretta Scott King. Throughout, the authors report on the actions, motives, and dreams of major figures in this period of the Civil Rights movement. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
