Soul on Ice
Dell, 1968 - 210 pages
The classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black experience.
With a preface by Ishmael Reed - "As with Malcolm X, Cleaver's book is a spiritual autobiography. An odyssey of a soul in search of itself, groping toward a personal humanism which will give meaning to life."--The Progressive
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 classic autobiography, is how much he was a man.

What began as a genuinely compelling look at a young man with a lot of anger and little direction, became a story of a man completely sure of himself, and almost entirely unrelatable. I definitely ... Consulter l'avis complet
