Classic!!!

Would you listen to Great African American Literary Voices again? Why?

Yes. I plan on listening to this book many more times. I just wish it was a little clearer, and much more longer. Also, I wish the the book introduced each poet. If I were not familiar with the poems I would not know what I was listening to.

Fascinating

This is a brief collection of fascinating recordings of African American authors. I especially enjoyed the recording of Langston Hughes, who was a great poet. It only takes ten minutes to listen to this and I suspect you will enjoy it. Recommended.
