The Nigger Factory is a scornful statement on the way in which human beings are conditioned to think. On the campus of Sutton University, Virginia, the students are trying to carry forth the message of reconstruction to a university resistant to change. The failure of the Sutton to embrace the changing attitudes of the Sixties has necessitated extreme action and the revolution is nigh.

MEDIA REVIEWS
For more than two decades, [Gil Scott-Heron] has been committed to examining those facts of the human condition that most of us would rather forget . . . he is an artist who has crafted witty but crucial insights for Black America. * * Washington Post * *
A biting social satire. * * Daily Express * *
They are impressive and ambitious works that vigorously mix street savvy and intellectual flair. * * GQ [On THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * *
With the pace of cleanly constructed thrillers they wield the force of a highly focused political consciousness . . . the clash of voices gives them a potency, both political and literary, which has survived changes in fashion. * * Herald [on THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * *
There's plenty of tension and sex, but also a whole heap of politics. These are ace period pieces. * * Select [on THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * *
The books are drenched with the dark overtones of America's underworld, battered by the storms of politics and race. They are as sexy as they are psychotic. * * City Life [on THE VULTURE and THE NIGGER FACTORY] * *
