    "Great Summation"

    Pros:
    Great Summation
    Sexy British Narrator

    Cons: it's really ... Really annoying when the narrator tries to talk with a southern accent for absolutely every quote from an American regardless of what their actual accent was. Stop it. Minus one star for that.

    And one small thing; ending with Barrack is great and touching, but it made it sound like theres nothing left to be done. Let's not allow perceptual complacency stop the progress.

    "Perfect History Lesson's For People On The Go!"

    I really enjoyed Rupert Colley’s audio book collections of History in an Hour. They teach me so much, and for a busy person like me on the go, it works out great to pick up such informative information of things that I thought that I already knew.

    This audio book, Black History: History in an Hour, really “hit the spot” and reminded me of things that I already knew, but at the same time helped me to learn a couple of new things too.

    I highly recommend the whole series of “History in an Hour” audio books.

    It would make perfect classroom teaching too!
