The Making of America: Volume 2: Susan B. Anthony, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Thurgood Marshall

Author: Teri Kanefield Narrator: Chris Lutkin, David Sadzin, Joyce Bean Release Date: February 2022

Unlike other biographies, the Making of America series goes beyond individual narratives linking influential figures to create an overarching story of America's growth that will deepen understanding of the country we live in today. This bundle featuring Susan B. Anthony, Thurgood Marshall, and Franklin D. Roosevelt focuses on some of the most notable names in equality and voting rights in America. Listeners will begin by learning about the life of America's famous suffragette, Susan B. Anthony. Born into a world in which men ruled women, she made it her life's work to change the law so that women could have a voice. Next, we will take a look at America's 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. The longest-serving U.S. president, he redefined the role of the U.S. government. Finally, we will explore the life and contributions of Thurgood Marshall, a lawyer who advocated for equality for all Americans. Each historical figure discussed in this bundle made an everlasting impact on America's trajectory, and their contributions can be seen in almost every facet of our daily lives.

The Future of the American Negro Audiobook

The Future of the American Negro

Author: Booker T. Washington Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: December 2021

Written in 1899 by Booker T. Washington, an American educator, orator, and advisor to several United States presidents, The Future of the American Negro outlines Washington's ideas on the history of African-American people and their need for education in order to advance themselves within society. Putting emphasis on the concept of industrial education, a term that encompasses learning the necessary functions of becoming a valuable member of society as well as being able to apply that knowledge to industrial business, Washington created a commentary on race, religion, education, and the state of America as it was in his time. Booker T. Washington was born into slavery and later went on to become one of the dominant leaders in the African American community, actively working against disenfranchisement and discrimination. The Future of the American Negro is an integral listen for anyone interested in American history, race, and key political figures of the past.

The Bona Fide Legend of Cool Papa Bell: Speed, Grace, and the Negro Leagues Audiobook

The Bona Fide Legend of Cool Papa Bell: Speed, Grace, and the Negro Leagues

Author: Lonnie Wheeler Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: May 2021

The ?rst full biography of the star Negro Leaguer and Hall of Famer James "Cool Papa" Bell (1903-1991) was a legend in Black baseball, a lightning-fast switch hitter elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974. Bell's speed was extraordinary; as Satchel Paige famously quipped, he was so fast he could ?ip a light switch and be in bed before the room got dark. In The Bona Fide Legend of Cool Papa Bell, experienced baseball writer and historian Lonnie Wheeler recounts the life of this extraordinary player, a key member of some of the greatest Negro League teams in history. Born to sharecroppers in Mississippi, Bell was part of the Great Migration, the movement of African Americans from the southern states to the northern states from 1910 through 1930. In St. Louis, baseball saved Bell from a life working in slaughterhouses. Wheeler charts Bell's ups and downs in life and in baseball, in the United States, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico, where he went to escape American racism and major league baseball's color line. Rich in context and suffused in myth, this is a treat for fans of baseball history.

No Common Ground: Confederate Monuments and the Ongoing Fight for Racial Justice Audiobook

No Common Ground: Confederate Monuments and the Ongoing Fight for Racial Justice

Author: Karen L. Cox Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: March 2021

When it comes to Confederate monuments, there is no common ground. Polarizing debates over their meaning have intensified into legislative maneuvering to preserve the statues, legal battles to remove them, and rowdy crowds taking matters into their own hands. These conflicts have raged for well over a century-but they've never been as intense as they are today. In this eye-opening narrative of the efforts to raise, preserve, protest, and remove Confederate monuments, Karen L. Cox depicts what these statues meant to those who erected them and how a movement arose to force a reckoning. She lucidly shows the forces that drove white southerners to construct beacons of white supremacy, as well as the ways that antimonument sentiment, largely stifled during the Jim Crow era, returned with the civil rights movement and gathered momentum in the decades after the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Monument defenders responded with gerrymandering and 'heritage' laws intended to block efforts to remove these statues, but hard as they worked to preserve the Lost Cause vision of southern history, civil rights activists, Black elected officials, and movements of ordinary people fought harder to take the story back.

The Black Church in the African American Experience Audiobook

The Black Church in the African American Experience

Author: C. Eric Lincoln, Lawrence H. Mamiya Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: March 2021

Black churches in America have long been recognized as the most independent, stable, and dominant institutions in black communities. The Black Church in the African American Experience, based on a ten-year study, is the largest nongovernmental study of urban and rural churches ever undertaken and the first major field study on the subject since the 1930s. Drawing on interviews with more than 1,800 black clergy in both urban and rural settings, combined with a comprehensive historical overview of seven mainline black denominations, C. Eric Lincoln and Lawrence H. Mamiya present an analysis of the Black Church as it relates to the history of African Americans and to contemporary black culture. In examining both the internal structure of the Church and the reactions of the Church to external, societal changes, the authors provide important insights into the Church's relationship to politics, economics, women, youth, and music. Among other topics, Lincoln and Mamiya discuss the attitude of the clergy toward women pastors, the reaction of the Church to the civil rights movement, the attempts of the Church to involve young people, the impact of the black consciousness movement and Black Liberation Theology and clergy, and trends that will define the Black Church well into the next century.

Comeback Season: My Unlikely Story of Friendship with the Greatest Living Negro League Baseball Play Audiobook

Comeback Season: My Unlikely Story of Friendship with the Greatest Living Negro League Baseball Play

Author: Cam Perron Narrator: Aden Hakimi, David Sadzin, Lamarr Gulley, Leon Nixon, Robin Eller Release Date: March 2021

The uplifting, unlikely, and inspirational true story of the friendships formed between Cam Perron—a white, baseball-obsessed teenager from Boston—and hundreds of former professional Negro League players, who were still awaiting the recognition and compensation that they deserved from Major League Baseball more than fifty years after their playing days were over. Featuring the players' fascinating stories and original photographs. Cam Perron always loved history, and from an early age, he had a knack for collecting. But when he was twelve and bought a set of Topps baseball cards featuring several players from the Negro Leagues, something clicked. Cam started writing letters to former Negro League players in 2007, asking for their autographs and a few words about their careers. He got back much more than he expected. The players responded with detailed stories about their glory days on the field, and the racism they faced, including run-ins with the KKK. They explained how they were repeatedly kept out of the major leagues and confined to the historic but lower-paying Negro Leagues, even after Jackie Robinson—who got his start in the Negro Leagues—broke the color barrier. By the time Cam finished middle school, letters had turned into phone calls, and he was spending hours a day talking with the players. In these conversations, many of the players revealed that their careers had been unrecognized over time, and they'd fallen out of touch with their former teammates. So Cam, along with a small group of fellow researchers, organized the first annual Negro League Players Reunion in Birmingham, Alabama in 2010. At the celebratory, week-long event, fifteen-year-old Cam and the players—who were in their 70s, 80s, and 90s—finally met in person. They quickly became family. As Cam and the players returned to the reunion year after year, Cam became deeply involved in a complicated mission to help many players get pension money that they were owed from Major League Baseball. He also worked to get a Negro League museum opened in Birmingham, and stock it with memorabilia. Sports fans—and anyone who enjoys a heartfelt story—will have their eyes opened by this book about unlikely friendships, the power of memories, and just how far a childhood interest can go.

If They Come in the Morning...: Voices of Resistance Audiobook

If They Come in the Morning...: Voices of Resistance

Author: Angela Y. Davis Narrator: David Sadzin, Janina Edwards Release Date: March 2021

With race and the police once more burning issues, this classic work from one of America's giants of black radicalism has lost none of its prescience or power. One of America's most historic political trials is undoubtedly that of Angela Davis. Opening with a letter from James Baldwin to Davis, and including contributions from numerous radicals such as Black Panthers George Jackson, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, and Erica Huggins, this book is not only an account of Davis's incarceration and the struggles surrounding it, but also perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough analysis of the prison system of the United States. Since the book was written, the carceral system in the US has seen unprecedented growth, with more of America's black population behind bars than ever before. The scathing analysis of the role of prison and the policing of black populations offered by Davis and her comrades in this astonishing volume remains as pertinent today as the day it was first published. Featuring contributions from George Jackson, Bettina Aptheker, Bobby Seale, James Baldwin, Ruchell Magee, Julian Bond, Huey P. Newton, Erika Huggins, Fleeta Drumgo, John Clutchette, and others.

We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement Audiobook

We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement

Author: Akinyele Omowale Umoja Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: January 2021

A bold and exciting historical narrative of the armed resistance of Black soldiers of the Mississippi Freedom Movement In We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement, Akinyele Omowale Umoja argues that armed resistance was critical to the Southern freedom struggle and the dismantling of segregation and Black disenfranchisement. Intimidation and fear were central to the system of oppression in most of the Deep South. To overcome the system of segregation, Black people had to overcome fear to present a significant challenge to White domination. As the civil rights movement developed, armed self-defense and resistance became a significant means by which the descendants of enslaved Africans overturned fear and intimidation and developed different political and social relationships between Black and White Mississippians. This riveting historical narrative reconstructs the armed resistance of Black activists, their challenge of racist terrorism, and their fight for human rights.

The Tuskegee Syphilis Study: An Insiders' Account of the Shocking Medical Experiment Conducted by Go Audiobook

The Tuskegee Syphilis Study: An Insiders' Account of the Shocking Medical Experiment Conducted by Go

Author: Fred D. Gray Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: January 2021

In 1932, the US Public Health Service recruited 623 African American men from Macon County, Alabama, for a study of 'the effects of untreated syphilis in the Negro male.' For the next forty years-even after the development of penicillin, the cure for syphilis-these men were denied medical care for this potentially fatal disease. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study was exposed in 1972, and in 1975 the government settled a lawsuit but stopped short of admitting wrongdoing. In 1997, President Bill Clinton welcomed five of the study survivors to the White House and, on behalf of the nation, officially apologized for an experiment he described as wrongful and racist. In this book, the attorney for the men describes the background of the study, the investigation and the lawsuit, the events leading up to the presidential apology, and the ongoing efforts to see that out of this painful and tragic episode of American history comes lasting good.
