Narrator Dion Graham transforms his voice to portray artist Winfred Rembert, who escaped the cotton fields of the Deep South he labored in as a child. During the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, he was nearly lynched by law enforcement and then found himself incarcerated and forced to work on a chain gang. Delivering this in-your-face memoir, Graham has an aged, comfortable tone, as if Winfred is sitting around the table telling the whole family his life story. Though Karen Chilton, who portrays Patsy, the love of Winfred's life, delivers fewer passages, both voices--heartfelt and down-home--complement each other. This is an important account of the life of a gifted American artist, as well as a wrenching, soulful history of the mid-twentieth-century United States.
