Sowing and Reaping: The Day's Work by Booker T. Washington is a series of talks delivered to the students of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial school located in Tuskegee, Alabama. These lectures focus on the essential principles for success for black students of that age, however, remain very relevant today.
The principles contained within this audiobook remind the listener of the need for education, innovation and determination coupled with hard honest labor which leads to a flourishing and prosperous future.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The fake Morgan Freeman voice acting and the piano in the background make this to be an extremely hard listen. I think the voice actor is extremely talented, BUT with this fake 1920s former slave voice is horror-awful.
What could Booker T. Washington have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Get a new actor or a new accent for the actor.
How could the performance have been better?
Make it more modern .
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I don't mean to be disrespectful of the actor I am sure he is very talent. The piano is too loud and he comes off over acting.
