Critic Reviews

"Recounting the compelling life of Jacob Lawrence, narrator Myra Taylor wisely lets his story take center stage. She's the unobtrusive narrator who steadily moves the story along. At key junctures, Taylor emphatically underscores Lawrence's belief that 'it's the little things that are big.' As the biography progresses, Taylor's narration mirrors Lawrence's own comfort with his status as 'a great artist, period.' Listeners will relish the life of this artist and this production."
