This audiobook perfectly captures the extraordinary Project C, the ten- week campaign to end segregation in Birmingham, Alabama, which was crucial to the subsequent success of the 1963 March on Washington. Jaime Lincoln-Smith's performance is exceptional. He complements the book's historical precision with his delivery of the memorable voice of Martin Luther King, Jr., while also creating personas for the other leaders who conceived and orchestrated the protest. Lincoln-Smith employs the staccato delivery of a newscaster to tell the central story. He mixes in precise tones and a range of emotions that enhance this previously untold chronicle of the Civil Rights movement. This memorable book is crucial to understanding the events of that era and how collective activism can lead to necessary change. D.J.S.
