Description

Bausum's historical nonfiction is routinely lauded by such organizations as the ALA and School Library Journal. In Marching to the Mountaintop, Bausum revisits 1968 Memphis, Tennessee, to examine how the sanitation workers' strike set the scene for one of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s greatest speeches. It would also be the site of his tragic death, an event that dramatically altered the face of the Civil Rights Movement.

Professional reviews

"Corey Allen's voice talents shine in this production, which covers a few critical months in the Civil Rights Movement--from the Memphis trash collector strike in early 1968 through Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, tragic assassination later that spring. Allen's pacing is excellent throughout, particularly his thoughtful, well-placed pauses, which emphasize pivotal moments and key facts. He handles a variety of firsthand accounts--from that of an experienced female marcher to that of the mayor of Memphis--with ease. Rather than try to emulate King, which would be near impossible, Allen uses the depth and richness of his own voice to bring life to the charismatic civil rights leader's words. This short production dus a superb job making an important period in American history compelling for today's young listeners. M.D. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
