On May 2, 1973, Black Panther Assata Shakur (aka JoAnne Chesimard) lay in a hospital, close to death, handcuffed to her bed, while local, state, and federal police attempted to question her about the shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike that had claimed the life of a white state trooper. Long a target of J. Edgar Hoover's campaign to defame, infiltrate, and criminalize Black nationalist organizations and their leaders, Shakur was incarcerated for four years prior to her conviction on flimsy evidence in 1977 as an accomplice to murder. This intensely personal and political autobiography belies the fearsome image of JoAnne Chesimard long projected by the media and the state. With wit and candor, Assata Shakur recounts the experiences that led her to a life of activism and portrays the strengths, weaknesses, and eventual demise of Black and White revolutionary groups at the hand of government officials. The result is a signal contribution to the literature about growing up Black in America that has already taken its place alongside The Autobiography of Malcolm X and the works of Maya Angelou. Two years after her conviction, Assata Shakur escaped from prison. She was given political asylum by Cuba, where she now resides.… (mere)

Fascinating raw and insightful autobio, worthy of being up there with that of Malcolm X. Weaving together stories of her childhood, arrest, court cases, and how she developed her political consciousness with her incisive and wide-ranging thoughts on the US "justice" system, police, COINTELPRO, the Black Panthers, education, family, Black Power, international anti-colonial struggles, and women. Some of the things she went through are horrifying. She has a powerful way with words and there are poems interspersed with the chapters.

The prologues (in the 2014 edition) provide some context for the situation in which she was writing, but as this is written from Assata's own perspective there are some assumptions made about prior knowledge (e.g. who Huey Newton is). However, this book would make a great starting point for further reading as it's written in a coloquial easy to understand style.

The money and manpower the US government put behind trying to humiliate, demoralize, and kill Assata Shakur is only testament to the righteousness of her ideas and actions. ( )

Very glad I got round to this. ( )

A very intense, powerful memoir of Assata Shakur's early life intermingled with her life after her arrest and the incredible amount of injustice she faced in numerous court systems, undergoing torturous isolation and other terrible treatment typical of prisons. It's TENSE but so, so powerful. I think you could teach this whole book as a real introduction to why the PIC should be abolished, or you could teach excerpts from her treatment. Her statement that she read in court in particular I think could be a great tool for kids to be introduced to the injustice of the American criminal court system and the US in general.

Just so powerful, I definitely recommend folks read it. ( )

This was an intense read, but one that is very important. It is something that people, especially Americans need to know about. I would recommend it to anyone. ( )

Actually want to reread this as I read it as an undergrad.
