Two African-American attorneys, best friends, find themselves opposing council in the reparations legal battle for the African-American Holocaust - over 400 years of slavery, Jim Crowe apartheid, and myriad forms of discrimination from the United States - while navigating the US legal system and wrestling with the resulting personal turbulences in their lives. In this full cast audio drama a multitude of reparations battles and issues going on in the US including White, African and African-American, Jewish, Chinese, Muslim, Mexican, and Native American slavery; illegal Italian-American&German-American WWII internment; Hawaiian reparations; two US Mexican-American ethnic cleansings; Guam reparations; illegal US medical experimentation and biological warfare tests on its citizens; and so much more.

Binge This!!!! Its Amazing! Compelling!!

Would you listen to Reparations I: The Attorneys again? Why?

Yes, there is a great story and interesting characters. I felt like I knew them.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked the defense attorney, but both had good qualities.

What does full cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Oh my. The voices brought you in some inviting, some seductive and some were smooth yet sinister. Their acting made the story come alive.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was funny yet tense throughout. I really liked the way the defense attorney protects and cares for his family.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this as equally entertaining as it is educational. It creates a possible future that is interesting to consider. Great story with a message.

Worse Audio book ever heard

Hated special effects. laughing, music and strange sounds were not necessary. I have listened to 100's of books and this was the worse. Only finished because I purchased it. The historical information was great and strong enough to sustain the book without all the extra!!!!
