In 2020, Sylvester turned his story-telling and public speaking skills in the direction of audiobook narrating. He was hired tas narrator for the 2010 book, "Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority" by Tom Burrell. Ironically, it was the first book Sylvester worked on as a consultant, researcher and contributor in 2009.    

In 2021, Sylvester released an audiobook version of his anthology of short stories: "White Castles with Jesus & Uncle Ray at the Used Tire Shop." Thoroughly enjoying the process, Sylvester is now offering his narration services to other publishers, authors or anyone interested in professional voiceover work for their projects.

Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority by Tom Burrell

By: Tom Burrell

Narrated by: Sylvester Brown Jr.

Brainwashed is a call to deprogram ourselves of self-defeating attitudes and actions. Racism is not the issue; how we respond to racism is most important. Burrell: "We must undo negative brainwashing and claim a new state of race-based self-esteem and self-actualization." Provocative and powerful, Brainwashed dares to expose the wounds so that we, at last, can heal.

White Castles with Jesus & Uncle Ray at the Used Tire Shop by Sylvester Brown, Jr.

Encouraged by his experience with Burrell's book, Sylvester continued the narrative art form with his own book of short stories. These stories-real and imagined- are inspired by the work of the great Langston Hughes. Here, Sylvester sits with Jesus, converses with racism, listens to the wise oracles of a used tire shop, mourns the neighborhood dope man, and discovers the miracle of White Castles during the holidays.
