An amazing woman with true morals, courage, intelligence, endurance, and great writing skills. The horror's she went through would have broke most. She was able to keep her head up, and STILL keeps her head up from CUBA where she lives free today after being broke out of prison by the Black Liberation Army.

Assata really allows you in her mind as she faces decisions; showing perspective. One great example of this is the scene where she decides to get pregnant even though she knows the chances are that she will never be able to be a mother to this child. Amazing look inside the mind of one of a great revolutionary.

Must read for people who think America was the good-guy in the cold war....there were no good guys. We took rights and lives of American citizens due to their political views same as we demonized them for.
