Washington's "Atlanta Exposition Address", the poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar and Langston Hughes, the rarely heard humour of Charley Case, readings from "God's Trombones" by James Weldon Johnson, and much more.

I've read the speeches, poetry, and stories many years ago and intermittently since college. When I saw this offering I wanted to hear the readings which were very well done. The content is as always my experience and history.
No, I've not had the opportunity prior, so this was a special treat.
It made me get still and reflect on how much has changed in America and yet how much is so much the same tragically.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with these great thinkers, writers, and speakers.
