Masterpieces of Negro Eloquence, edited by Alice Dunbar-Nelson (1875 - 1935).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/masterpieces-of-negro-eloquence-by-alice-dunbar-nelson/
It seems eminently fitting and proper in this year, the fiftieth anniversary of the Proclamation of Emancipation that the Negro should give pause and look around him at the things which he has done, those which he might have done, and those which he intends to do. We pause, just at the beginning of another half century, taking stock of past achievements, present conditions, future possibilities. (Preface)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/22240
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Looks great...and very interesting. Nice find. Note that I shortened the filenames. Long ones just lead to problems.

Yeah, filenames always seem too long. Thanks. For that and the set-up as a whole. I am excited too.
