Adorable+wholesome!

He takes the usual personality to exceed from telling a story to Identifying w the struggles and compassion of people trying to understand themselves in a world that doesn't recognize All people. It's a good book and show* for more than just black ppl. Educate yourself^^

good, but I expected more

entertaining and informational. as expected, funny, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It was a bit rushed and short.

This is no audio book

Entertainment wise it's very good. Kevin hart is awesome and the stories are fascinating. But it's not an audio book, it's more like listening to a video, which I'm pretty sure it is. Some of the jokes clearly were suppose to be visual, and it's hard to distinguish some characters
overall, a good one.

So cute with great stories!

This is definitely worth listening to. I didn't realize how much we have that depended on the drive of black Americans. Plus, Kevin Hart really did a fantastic job keeping things interesting. I wish it was longer with more black history information. I would have liked to hear more about the building of the foundation of America through the story telling art of Kevin Hart. Great job!

Abracadabra Abracadabra Moment - Grade C

I think this Abracadabra magic moment Kevin?

Not really up to a good standard grade B

It is okay and I enjoyed it, but I wanted so much more.

I felt sad there wasn't more.

It has excellent moments and interaction,
But the full stories need to be told in a more sombre tone.
There is no grind, just a polish of their achievements.

You have to see the journey and without that journey in the story it is watered down greatly
He won a gold medal - Abracadabra and that's it?

Abracadabra, and its a pigeon not an bald eagle,
There is a grace and dignity in that journey that is what I want experience in the story.


“We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.”
—Jesse Owens, world record-setting Olympic athlete

I want a bald eagle and how it learnt to fly or had to wait until the feathers were ready to fly:

It's a grind!

If it takes million times to flap those wings, I want to hear that story!

A trophy on a shelf is a pigeon, even if polished, like a mirror in a trophy cabinet.

Maybe, someone should do a TV series with real depth on this idea of Black History. Each week dedicate to a hero from 1,000 years ago or today, Tell their story with soul and be an inspiration as as there many songs or instruments that can give someone inspiration.

The best way to ruin that story would be to add politics.

LIke music let that person feel it in "their soul", not dictated by another persons' view.

"Jazz hands"


Easy reading is hard writing with every ember of your being put into that story - not ego.
