Would you consider the audio edition of Nashida Visits the Smith Robertson Musuem to be better than the print version?

The Nashida character shares her museum experience and history lessons with readers in a very informative and in a thought provoking manner. She described key personalities involved in breaking down Jim Crow barriers such as Medgar Evers, James Meredith, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Anne Moody. She described pictures, protest signs, buildings, artifacts, Jim Crow culture, and much more. Readers will feel they are personally taking a journey back in time with Nashida.
