    "Appropriate Audio"

    Loved that the accent was never exaggerated and if I am not mistaken, this is one of ONLY TWO recordings of this great novel that are made in a Black man's voice. Great job.

    Story
    "Made Me Cry & Laugh!"

    I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have been able to listen to this biography! The will of the human spirit is palpable long after Mr. Douglass' death and I'm proud to know the type of stock I come from; blacks are not just victims to the harsh institution of slavery/ America but also how through personal responsibility one can find mental and physical freedom in the face of incredible odds. At times I laughed and at times I mourned for my ancestors in reading this book but I thoroughly delighted in all of it! I highly recommend this narrator because I enjoyed hearing the voice of a black man read the biography...it connected it more for me and made the book come alive!

    "A Must Read on Many Levels"

    It's a moving first-hand account about slavery, religion, American history, and empowerment through reading. I'm going to listen to this book over and over again.

    "Sheds Light On A Dark System"

    This book shines light on a dark system and mindset that have been perpetuated throughout the history of this nation. This is a needed publication that is as necessary, if not more necessary, now than it has always been.
