In 2013, Assata Shakur – founding member of the Black Liberation Army, former Black Panther and godmother of Tupac Shakur – became the first ever woman to make the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list. In many ways this autobiography is Assata introducing herself, on her own terms and voice. She has in many ways become the stuff of legends. ‘The most wanted woman in the world’ ‘founding member of the Black Liberation Army’ ‘godmother of Tupac Shakur’, and here the reader meets Assata, who becomes Assata after deciding that she will longer be Joanne Chesimard.
She writes with clarity, and with a sharp mind that’s able to make connections between her own personal experience and the experience of other black bodies.
