Morgan Freeman and Taj Mahal

OMG, this is an EXCELLENT production and I’m so glad to have stumbled onto it! This was totally worth the price, despite being a short story, and I’m sure I’ll listen again. Perfect for adults or kids over 5yo, and would also make a perfect in-class learning experience for students learning about the Underground Railroad. The music 🎶 by the great Taj Mahal is the ideal accompaniment to the story and to Morgan Freeman’s sterling narration. Grade: A++
