Assata Shakur fut, dans les années 60 et 70, militante du Black Panther Party et de l’Armée de Libération Noire. Elle a connu le formidable bouillonnement d’une époque de révoltes et d’espérances pour les Noirs des États-Unis, comme la répression. De sa tendre enfance à son exil à Cuba, ses souvenirs se structurent autour du récit d’un emprisonnement de six ans. Une exceptionnelle leçon d’histoire populaire et d’engagement dans laquelle Assata dresse un portrait sans fard de l’oppression raciale et de la violence capitaliste aux États-Unis.

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.
