Publisher Description

A collection of Jackson's letters from prison, Soledad Brother is an outspoken condemnation of the racism of white America and a powerful appraisal of the prison system that failed to break his spirit but eventually took his life. Jackson's letters make palpable the intense feelings of anger and rebellion that filled black men in America's prisons in the 1960s. But even removed from the social and political firestorms of the 1960s, Jackson's story still resonates for its portrait of a man taking a stand even while locked down.

Empowering

I am so happy I finally sat down and read this book. Knowledge is power and the letter of George Jackson empowered me and I must say influenced me. This book has broaden my understanding of the African American status quo. George Jackson emphasized that we need to be in control of our destiny and the resources to assist us in acquiring a life worth lived. Happiness, peace, and freedom. Liberation is still needed in America as well as the world today. Self-determination is needed to manifest that reality. Power to the People.
