This review is from: The Sixteenth Round. From Number 1 Contender to Number 45472. (Paperback)
I found this book to be an eyeopener for the plight of the lives of black American youth of the 1950&60's and the prejudices they faced. As told by the author he became by need a man who relied on his own courage and integrity to survive each passing day from youth detention to ultimately arrest and detention for 3 alleged murders. After being institutionalised for the majority of his life I find it amazing that a person could endure such blatant bigotry and I hope Rubin Carter has finally found peace in a world that has hopefully changed.
