Randall Robinson is a voice of African-American consciousness. An initiator of the protests in the United States that helped end apartheid in South Africa, Robinson now ponders our nation. He convincingly argues that the growing presence of modern prisons, many privatized for-profit operations, is as much a threat to this current generation of African-Americans as slavery was to an earlier one. Cornell Womack gives a powerful narration. He is reflective as Robinson himself in the autobiographical segments, defiant as a young man fresh out of prison, and articulate as a mature man who mentors troubled youth. This book delivers an important message for all Americans. P.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
