In this candid autobiography, he recounts the experiences that led him to change African-American literature, from his role in black nationalism after the assassination of Malcolm X to his involvement in Civil Rights clashes and commitment to an international socialist vision. Unavailable since 1986, this is the first unedited publication of the autobiography, which sold over 30,000 copies.
