User Review  - jasonli - LibraryThing

A riveting account of a prominent black activist in 1970s USA, on her upbringing, her struggles with the system at large, and her endless and senseless incarceration. Read full review

I initially had to read this for a women's studies class. I'm very happy I was introduced to Assata's story and that I had the privileged to read her counter narrative. I've sent the book around to my circle of friends and they all love it and now own their own copy. I definitely recommend this autobiography.
