Shaka N’Zinga’s powerful memoir reveals the personal and political transformation of an African American youth growing up in the urban poverty of Baltimore. The writing slips between present and past and between poetry and prose, gradually revealing the protagonist’s shifts in consciousness. Incarcerated since age sixteen, the author's articles have been influential in prisoner support networks. The book joins such classics as Eldridge Cleaver’s Soul on Ice and George Jackson’s Soledad Brother.
