Narrator Emmett Wheatfall delivers a conversational performance in this autobiography by activist and photographer Richard Brown. He is best known for his community activism between police and the Black community in Portland, Oregon. This inspirational memoir reflects on Brown's childhood in 1940s Harlem and his military experience, both of which were impacted by his Blackness and informed his later activism. Wheatfall casually modulates between the righteous indignation of resisting white supremacy and a friendly nonchalance while detailing hard-won victories and feelings of Black pride. Wheatfall's mature tone and consistent pacing perfectly capture Brown's candid writing style. Listeners will find this audiobook full of inspiring and tangible guidance to bring to their own activism. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
