'Assata speaks to all of us'
Angela Davis, from the foreword
'Her writing in consistently defiant and witty ... Her hindsight and observations are vital in a society that's still stuck on how to live together ... essential reading for every political thinker concerned with race, and for every activist who is interested in creating a movement that grows.'
Reni Eddo-Lodge, author of Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race
'A deftly written book . . . A spellbinding tale.'
The New York Times
'Of all the great memoirs to come out of the Black Power Movement (Angela Davis, Bobby Seale, Amiri Baraka, Nina Simone), Assata is my favorite. I draw a lot of inspiration from the Black Power Movement, and the way that she describes her activism is overflowing with passion and heart.'
'A sober, restrained, but forceful recollection. ... A must book for those interested in the 'revolutionaries' of the 1960s'
'A compelling tale of the impact of white racism on a sensitive and powerful young black woman.'
