“Soleded Brother: The Prison Letters of George Jackson” is an insightful portrait of a young, Black man during the last half of the 1960s. George Jackson’s letters contain truth, hope, anger, love, bitterness – all the conflicting emotions a man in his situation knows. Though somewhat tainted by his displays of misogyny and condescension toward his mother, George Jackson’s words are still valid today and should be read, specifically, by those interested in reforming the prison system. 4 out 5 stars.
