    Audible presents the multigenerational epic Some Sing, Some Cry. Created by Ntozake Shange and Ifa Bayeza, this audiobook takes listeners on a journey through Reconstruction, two world wars, the Harlem renaissance, and Vietnam to modern day America.Some Sing, Some Cry begins at the threshold of one family’s freedom. We meet Betty Mayfield, newly emancipated from Sweet Tamarind, a lush and haunted rice plantation off the Carolina coast.

    Overall

    I enjoyed the rich and historic journey this book took me on! It was beautifully written and I appreciated the point of view that was highlighted. I have never enjoyed a reader so much! I found myself singing along with her as if I knew the songs! She nailed every dialect and every music style with expert ease! Thanks for the extraordinarily emotional read! I also enjoyed the authors interview at the end.
