Self Development Winner: Black Privilege

I had never heard of Charlamagne Tha God before summer 2017. (Go ahead and snicker. I’ll wait.) I noticed listeners were loving Black Privilege, the message and the performance, so I plunged right in. I disagreed with some of Charlamagne’s advice (I don’t even agree with the subtitle!), but… I never stopped listening. Charlamagne’s authenticity and passion came through in every word. Best of all, Black Privilege opened up new conversations in my life, with new people, and on new topics. And, after all, isn’t that the point of stories? Black Privilege is my audiobook of the year for self development because connection and dialogue feel like antidotes to 2017’s societal polarization. —Christina, Audible Editor
