To Be a Drum artfully tells the tale of the African people, starting with them being brought to America in slave ships up through the Civil War, the Civil Rights era and present day. As an e-book read by James Earl Jones, this story is extremely powerful. He reads it beautifully with great pauses and emotion. It's hard not to love hearing the sound of his voice! To Be a Drum speaks of the pride and independence a people have found despite constant oppression. Ages 4 and up.
