I uploaded Section 2 on November 3rd, but it is still showing in my Reader Details as Assigned. It's been two weeks, and not in the MW yet. Is there a problem with my file?
Section 2 is nicely done and very much PL ok! Your nice clear diction made listening very easy. :)

Great! Now that is behind me, I would be pleased to take on Sections 7 and 11.

I've had the flu, then been a bit hoarse for a few weeks but it's understandable enough, I hope.

Yay! I'll probably be able to PL these on Sunday. Looking forward to it!

I hope you're feeling better.

Good job on section 7, Michelle! Pretty harsh verdict he gave, but I can't say I disagree with him. I have one correction for you to make:

Repeat at about 8:05-8:12 "...that can be perpetrated upon human beings... that can be perpetrated upon human beings known in the history of the world."

While section 11, in stark contrast, had quite the rosy outlook. To be honest, I thought it sounded rather naive!

PL ok. :thumbs:

Section 97:

There is an odd click at 7:00, followed by severe audio distortion for maybe ten seconds or so. Your words are distinguishable here, but it sounds like you're underwater. "How well these purposes are subserved is left with the individual, the race or the nation. Afflictions are a wholesome discipline, and the people who would survive the wreck of nations must fight their way up under the inexorable law of God, through trials, through tribulations, through persecution and through blood."

There's really no way to repair this, so will you please re-record this bit?

I am enjoying the aspect of black leaders assessing their race as they struggled to define, strategize, and attempt to take their place as free men in American society. What an ordeal!
