5.0 out of 5 stars campus shenanigans in the 1970s 27 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Undoubtedly one of the most crude offerings regarding the state of American Universities during the 1970s. Revolving around a group of black students who decide that the way their campus is being run does not coincide with the way that they would like to see it run, developing into conferuntations not only with the 'man' but also within their ranks. A raw reflection of 'Race Politics' and the ideals behind the motivation that drove people to riot during this unstable political climate. This book not only examines university life but also the reasoning behind institutions and whether the 'University of Life' is not an altogether a better option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet 6 Dec 2013
By [b]®oane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Awesome book by a prolific artist of our time. At first, I found the dialog a little much for my liking, but it won me over. I wished the story would have continued on, but in this gem I found a great sense that Mr. Scott-Heron was giving us a look at the mental state of civil rights at the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old school message 23 Dec 2013
By Ron Wilder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is an old school message meant to describe the 1970's. It tells of how the Civil Rights movement was betrayed by petty drug dealers and wanna be prophets of a new society. It touches upon the contradiction of being black in the US and not having a thing to do to counter the criminal elements.
