Great book, convencing performance
What did you love best about Middle Passage?
This book is a great combination of intellectual imagination, artistic skill, and fun. The performer was very convincing in a complex and difficult first person novel where much depends on how the narrator is presented.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Middle Passage?
there are many, but one that stands out is when the protagonist has an encounter with a captive African god.
What about Dion Graham’s performance did you like?
Graceful move from profound philosophical ideas to playful sarcasm in African American intellectual vernacular.
If you could rename Middle Passage, what would you call it?
The fateful voyage of the Republic
Any additional comments?
I would like to hear more books by Charles Johnson. His book "Dreamer" about Martin Luther King Jr. would be a great pick.

Communism, Capitalism, & Charles Johnson
This is an outstanding work worthy of critical review next to such works as Foucault's Discipline & Punishment and Hutcheon's The Politics of Postmodernism. Not many great historiographic meta fictions exist to rival this one, and few there be that live to exceed its profound call to the issues of capitalistic enslavement and social injustice.
