Look for Me in the Whirlwind: Publishers Weekly Starred Review

 

"In the era of Black Lives Matter, this chronicle of the Black Panther 21—the group charged in 1969 with the conspiracy to commit violent acts in what became the longest trial in New York history—is more relevant than ever. This book offers accounts from the 21 members put on trial, including Sundiata Acoli, the Black Liberation Army fighter sentenced to life in prison for the death of a New Jersey state trooper; Jamal Joseph, an Academy Award–nominated filmmaker; Afeni Shakur, mother of rapper Tupac Shakur; and Assata Shakur, member of the Panther-associated Black Liberation Army and the first woman on the FBI’s most-wanted list. ...This book demonstrates the scope of the Panthers’ intellectual gifts as well as the compassion and revolutionary spirit at the center of their radical grassroots activism."—Publishers Weekly

Buy Look For Me in the Whirlwind: From the Panther 21 to 21st-Century Revolutions

"(Black and White) is a book that should be in every home, school, community center and library."

"The photos in this book are stunning, both for their quality and content. But as important as that is, there's more: the book tells a story of the times, of the people and institutions of those times. It reminds us of Liberation News Service, a collective of people in New York and writers (including myself) and photographers scattered around the country, committed to telling the world about the movement for peace and social justice. And not just individuals, but collectives who put out newspapers -- daily, weekly, monthly-- all around the country too."—Cuba Inside Out

(H)afrocentric Comics Starred Review in Kirkus & more!

“The novel hosts a multicultural cast of college students who engage politically, blending satire and history for a recipe of topics millennials don’t shy from. Sporting a tank top with the word “Ally” written above a photo of John Brown, perched on top of the literal soap box she preaches from, Naima Pepper is a force to be reckoned with... Readers will be smitten with Naima, and they will hope for more of her."—Kirkus
