Narrator Cary Hite offers an engrossing and resonant performance of this young adult adaptation of the life of Paul Robeson. Due to his radical civil rights activism, Robeson's legacy as the first internationally renowned Black actor and singer has been largely downplayed. Listeners will follow Robeson's triumphs as an all-star athlete, valedictorian, lawyer, and stage actor, along with his struggles with mental health and personal relationships. Hite seamlessly emulates Robeson's signature baritone and adopts various global accents while quoting other famous figures while keeping a steady pace throughout his narration. This accessible audiobook will introduce younger listeners to a prominent historical figure who succeeded despite setbacks. An inspiring work that new generations of activists will savor.
