"Tell me what happened while there's still time," demands the dying Senator Adam Sunraider to the itinerate Negro preacher whom he calls Daddy Hickman. As a young man, Sunraider was Bliss, an orphan taken in by Hickman and raised to be a preacher like himself. Bliss's history encompasses the joys of young southern boyhood; bucolic days as a filmmaker, lovemaking in a field in the Oklahoma sun. And behind it all lies a mystery: how did this chosen child become the man who would deny everything to achieve his goals? Brilliantly crafted, moving, wise, Juneteenth is the work of an American master.

Moreton's Brilliant Performance of Juneteenth
Where does Juneteenth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is one of the best books and certainly one of the best narrators I've enjoyed in a decade of Audible experiences.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Rev. A.Z. Hickman is a total, compelling protagonist, clear-eyed and poetic.
What does Joe Morton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think Joe Morton should be performing this book on stage. He paints this book with his voice, and listening to him is definitely a richer experience than reading the book in print.

"Invisible Man" and "Juneteenth" are necessary, brilliant and will have an undeniable physical, emotional, intellectual and moral impact on any reader. Stunningly written and beautifully voiced by Mr. Morton.
