Finding a Way Out: An Autobiography by Robert R. Moton (1867 - 1940).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/finding-a-way-out-by-robert-r-moton/
He says about this work: "I have tried to record the events that have given character and colour to my own life, and at the same time to reflect upon the impressions made upon my mind by experiences that I could not always reconcile with what I had learned of American ideals and standards." (author in the Preface)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/findingawayouta00motogoog
  • 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!

MW coming up.

edit: There seemed to be a difference in the first post and the Project Screen as to whether you were going to read the Preface and how many sections you wanted. I assumed yes for the former (hence, section 0) and 20 for the latter. Let me know if you would rather have the first section as 1 rather than 0. Also, I can easily delete any unused sections before you finish the book.
