Professional reviews

"Recounting the compelling life of Jacob Lawrence, narrator Myra Taylor wisely lets his story take center stage. SheÕs the unobtrusive narrator who steadily moves the story along. Listeners are free to marvel at the myriad aspects of the African-American painterÕs development: his early interest in art at an after-school center in Harlem where his interest in painting was awakened, his experiences with the Coast Guard and the officer who encouraged him to paint murals of shipboard life, and, later, his navigation of the changing racial climate. At key junctures, Taylor emphatically underscores LawrenceÕs belief that ÒitÕs the little things that are big.Ó As the biography progresses, TaylorÕs narration mirrors LawrenceÕs own comfort with his status as Òa great artist, period.Ó Listeners will relish the life of this artist and this production.
