Soul on Ice
Delta Trade Paperbacks, 1992 - 242 pages
The now-classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black experience.

Cleaver writes in Soul on Ice, "I'm perfectly aware that I'm in prison, that I'm a Negro, that I've been a rapist, and that I have a Higher Uneducation." What Cleaver shows us, on the pages of this now classic autobiography, is how much he was a man.
