Poor voice performance

It's evident that the narrator was using a fake southern accent. Who was she trying to sound like,? An ignorant so-call African American from the south? If so then...Why?

Well researched, informative, and eye opening

This is a great book written by a black American patriot about black patriots and the fight for the constitutional, God-given, self evident right to equality. I usually listen to business related books but I enjoyed learning more about our country's history and the views of the men and women who fought for equality. This book is backed up by (and quotes) many historical documents and will probably challenge some of what you've been lead to believe. I would recommend this book to anyone no matter their heritage!
