I think its fair to say that Assata has inspired so many by taking the time to write her story. Too often Black freedom fighters are written out of history by historians, media, and governments who want young people to see a fraction of a picture. Because I read her story I understand a bit more what young Black folks went through to bring awareness to the next generation. As the US government tries to co opt Cuba, and get their hands on a people who have stood strong, they’re going to try and paint Assata as a villain. We know how ever now though that cops/govt’s make up whatever story they want to to cover up their true deeds.. Hands Off Assata!
