JD Jackson narrates the compiled lectures of Julian Bond (1940-2015), founding member of SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee), board chairman of the NAACP, and history professor for more than 20 years. The lectures follow the sweeping history of the Southern Civil Rights movement from the early 1900s through the 1960s and the Vietnam era. Jackson's deep-voiced delivery is smooth and unemotional, suiting both the topic and the sometimes disturbing subject matter. Subtly shifting vocal tones and pacing signal the reading of documents, speeches, laws, and trial results. The lectures are packed with biographical sketches of people and events, as well as graphic descriptions of violence committed against protesters and activists, particularly during the Freedom Rides. Jackson's steady, polished narration allows listeners to reflect while absorbing this comprehensive history. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
