Reviews
"Young reminds us that freedom has not been realized for everyone, but his vigorous and appealing voice encourages the hope that we may continue to understand and appreciate one another's perspectives and dialects." --Phoebe Pettingell, The New Leader

"Heartfelt bluntness . . . Rich with unfettered honesty . . . A confederation of losses, continuing Young's exploration of African-American culture and history in musical form: Jazz and blues spoken here." --Katie Peterson, Chicago Tribune
