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.

Looking at Black Panther member George Jackson's prison letters, which were published as Soledad Brother in 1970, this book examines the construction of black male identities in 1960s America. Marginalized by white middle class masculinity, Jackson considers himself disempowered and emasculated. However, his very own concepts of black masculinity and femininity are determined by stereotypes taken from white culture. Although George Jackson, as a radical activist, fights against white supremacy, he orients himself around the gender dichotomy established by the very powers he is resisting.

"We are cozy cuddly/armed and dangerous/and we will/raze the fucking prisons/to the ground." In an attempt to deliver on this promise, the George Jackson Brigade launched a violent three-year campaign in the mid-seventies against corporate and state institutions in the Pacific Northwest. This campaign, conceived by a group of blacks and whites, both straight and gay, claimed fourteen bombings, as many bank robberies, and a jailbreak. Drawing on extensive interviews with surviving members of the George Jackson Brigade, Guerrilla USA: The George Jackson Brigade and the Anti-Capitalist Underground of the 1970s is an intimate portrait of a group of anarcho-communist revolutionaries that widens into a broader story of the prisons that produced them and of the city dwellers who responded to their combustive rage. Providing an inside-out perspective on the social movements of the 1970s, this explosive book reveals the whole era in a new and more complex light. A fast-paced tale of love, death, and revolution, it is also a compelling exploration of the true natrue of crime and a provocative meditation on the tension between self-restraint and anger in the process of social change.

Correlates George Jackson's writing and classical slave narratives, while demonstrating that Jackson's Prison letters do constitute a contemporary form of slave narrative. Investigates Jackson's formative years which impacted his vision of the world; his prison experience which impacted his philosophy and political ideas, and his relationship to the Black Panther party; and his development as a literary writer. Examines Jackson's basic premise that even though slavery was legally ended in 1865, the economic and political restraints on the neo-slave remain the same. Compares Jackson's definition of the neo-slave and neo-slavery exemplified in his work with that of classical slave narratives.

America Is The Prison

In the 1970s, while politicians and activists outside prisons debated the proper response to crime, incarcerated people helped shape those debates though a broad range of remarkable political and literary writings. Lee Bernstein explores the forces that sparked a dramatic "prison art renaissance," shedding light on how incarcerated people produced powerful works of writing, performance, and visual art. These included everything from George Jackson's revolutionary Soledad Brother to Miguel Pinero's acclaimed off-Broadway play and Hollywood film Short Eyes. An extraordinary range of prison programs--fine arts, theater, secondary education, and prisoner-run programs--allowed the voices of prisoners to influence the Black Arts Movement, the Nuyorican writers, "New Journalism," and political theater, among the most important aesthetic contributions of the decade. By the 1980s and '90s, prisoners' educational and artistic programs were scaled back or eliminated as the "war on crime" escalated. But by then these prisoners' words had crossed over the wall, helping many Americans to rethink the meaning of the walls themselves and, ultimately, the meaning of the society that produced them.

Once a prominent radio reporter, Mumia Abu-Jamal is now in a Pennsylvania prison awaiting his state-sactioned execution. In 1982 he was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner after a trial many have criticized as profoundly biased. Live From Death Row is a collection of his prison writings--an impassioned yet unflinching account of the brutalities and humiliations of prison life. It is also a scathing indictment of racism and political bias in the American judicial system that is certain to fuel the controversy surrounding the death penalty and freedom of speech.
