THE SUMMER READ

“Afeni Shakur, Evolution of a Revolutionary” by Jasmine Guy.
“Though sometimes a little conventional in its form, this book tells the life story of Afeni Shakur (formerly Alice Faye),
her upbringing in a violent home, her rise in the Black Panthers Movement, her spiral into drugs and her phoenix like rise
as the gatekeeper of her son’s (Tupac) Hip Hop empire. Not a literary object, but a book that reads like a great HBO mini series biopic..”
