Summary
"A history of the rise and lasting impact of Black liberation groups in America, as seen through the Shakurs, one of the movement's most prominent and fiercely creative families, home to Tupac and Assata, and a powerful incubator for today's activism, scholarship, and artistry"-- Provided by publisher.
For over fifty years, the Shakurs have inspired generations of activists, scholars, and music fans. Whether founding one of the most notorious Black Panther chapters in the country, spearheading community-based healthcare, or engaging in armed struggle with systemic oppression, the Shakurs were at the forefront. Holley provides a true and complete story of the Shakur family through a history of the fight for Black liberation in the United States-- as experienced and shaped by the Shakurs. It is the story of a small but determined community, taking extreme, unconventional, and often perilous measures in the quest for freedom. -- adapted from jacket
