Ive heard Assata Shakurs name several times over the years but I knew next to nothing about her. It was only when earlier on this year her name resurfaced when she became the only woman on the FBIs most wanted list that I decided to read the book to learn what all the brouhaha was about. This is one of the most riveting books I have ever read. I experienced so many emotions when reading this book. For the first part of the This was a brilliant autobiography about an amazing and resilient woman.

For the first part of the book, the main emotion was disgust and shock, firstly at the police brutality Assata experienced it was very hard to read some of the graphic scenes , and also at the American judicial system which was clearly racist.

Her writing has her genuine and authentic voice and her story is enthralling. She has such a brilliant sense of humour. The whole book was very readable and informative. Nobody could look that corny. The book made me question why the world is seemingly pushing for homogeneity when cultural diversity is a lot more interesting.

I also wish she had included how she had escaped from prison. Yes, race is a huge part of it but capitalism is also talked about a lot and I think her insights into the system are very useful and enlightening.

Culture — Assata Shakur I must confess that waltzes do not move me.
