Editorial Reviews


“Shakur, the black ‘revolutionary’ fugitive residing in Cuba, was elevated to the FBI’s ‘most wanted’ list in 2013. Picking up her autobiography, first published in 1988, for the first time in nearly 20 years, I was struck by an odd sense that her brave and powerful account of the black power movement in the 1960s and 1970s feels almost more relevant than when I first read it. Her condemnation of the ‘one per cent’ (who control the wealth) and the criminal justice system resonates strongly with contemporary movements such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter.”
(Anna Hartnell Times Higher Education)

About the Author

Assata Shakur is the FBI's most wanted woman. A former member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army, in 1979 she escaped from prison, was granted asylum in Cuba, and has been a fugitive ever since.
