Revolutionary Suicide by Huey P. Newton

Recommended Posts

This is another one of my favorite books of all time. Amazon describes it as :

 

Eloquently tracing the birth of a revolutionary, Huey P. Newton's famous and oft-quoted autobiography is as much a manifesto as a portrait of the inner circle of America's Black Panther Party. From Newton's impoverished childhood on the streets of Oakland to his adolescence and struggles with the system, from his role in the Black Panthers to his solitary confinement in the Alameda County Jail, Revolutionary Suicide is smart, unrepentant, and thought-provoking in its portrayal of inspired radicalism.

 

Being 30, I never experienced the 60s or 70s. But this books is a window into that world. When oppressed people took up arms are put their lives on the line for their freedom. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I read the book when it came out, many moons ago. The 60s & 70s were tumultuous times and could be described as revolutionary. Newton's view is just one; and a narrow one at that.

Newton another yapping dark face in the coal bin. I wonder if he knew Holder back in the day maybe they did some monkeyshines together?
