The perspective of this audio memoir is interesting: A Black cop in Minneapolis is a school security officer who doubles as the football coach. As author Charles Adams opens up about the challenges of his jobs, he is candid about inner-city problems and offers solutions. The venerable Leon Nixon shapes the memoir using inflection at all the right moments. He imitates angry men and women when necessary to enhance the author's message. As Adams opens up about racial situations on and off the field and in and out of the police force (including the death of George Floyd), Nixon guides the listener. He enunciates well and successfully communicates the author's anecdotes and opinions. Listeners glean interesting perspectives through a unique lens and clear voice.
