The now-classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately
changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black
experience. By turns shocking and lyrical, unblinking and raw, the
searingly honest memoirs of Eldridge Cleaver are a testament to his unique
place in American history. Cleaver writes inSoul on Ice, "I'm
perfectly aware that I'm in prison, that I'm a Negro, that I've been a rapist,
and that I have a Higher Uneducation." What Cleaver shows us, on the pages
of this now classic autobiography, is how much he was a man.
