Soul on Ice
McGraw-Hill, 1968 - 210 pages
The now-classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black experience. By turns shocking and lyrical, unblinking and raw, the searingly honest memoirs of Eldridge Cleaver are a testament to his unique place in American history. 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.

was laughing at . It was coming from deep inside him , but his face looked pained
... gaze and see reflected there ourselves and each other — what we used to be ,
what we are today , how we got this way , and what we are becoming . To decline
to look into the Mirror of Then , my heart , is to refuse to view the face of Now .
