The Autobiography of Assata Shakur takes place during the 60's-70's and chronicals the life of Assata Shakur from her childhood to her time when she was a part of the Black Panther Party. I must say that I really enjoyed the book and it was very interesting. One thing that was different about this book was the fact that in the story she went back and forth between the time when she was young to the time when she went to jail. I also liked that she spoke her mind a lot about her situation and the people in her life. That was another thing that kept me interested. Her autobiography helped me understand more about the Black Panthers and what they stood for and she seemed to be very head strong because of the people in her life and because of the experieces that she had in her life. The whole meaning of how much life defines who we are is definitly covered in this and that's what made it to me a really good book.
