In an era of stark racial injustice and decisive action, Aaron Dixon dedicated his life to the struggle for change, founding the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968 at age nineteen. Through his eyes - in a memoir that begins with the story of his enslaved ancestors and takes us on a journey throughout America - we see the courage of a generation, and the unforgettable legacy of Black Power.
