Blood In My Eye captures the spirit of George Jackson's legendary resistance to unbridled oppression and racism. His unique and incisively critical perspective becomes the unifying thread that ties this collection of letters and essays in which he presents his analysis of armed struggle, class war, fascism, communism and a wide array of topics. Blood In My Eye was completed only days before it's author was killed. George Jackson was assassinated on August 21, 1971 at the hands of San Quentin prison guards during an alleged escape attempt. At eighteen, George Jackson was convicted of stealing seventy dollars from a gas station and was sentenced from one year to life. He was to spend the rest of his life--eleven years--in the California prison system, seven in solitary confinement. In prison he read widely and transformed himself into an activist and political theoretician who defined himself as a revolutionary. Written with the memory of his slain brother, Jonathan, constantly before him, this book is speaks to the poor, the jailed, and the disenfranchised throughout the world. A POEM FOR JONATHAN JACKSON one life jonathan a fleeting moment you stayed and our lives were filled (somehow) with your strength some of us knew only your name some of us saw only your face many of us condemned your thoughts most of us loved you-jonathan blossoms of orange and yellow are like your gentleness steel and Oakwood are like your soul songs unsung for you hum inside me poems unwritten guide me, thru days sometimes comrade jonathan man-child promise of a future fathers and sons you are sons that grow into men. you are men that become aware of the truth. how coarse life is-yet we must celebrate it-give to it-you taught us that if we can suffer living, dying is smooth especially if we give to the people our lives one life jonathan life jonathan jon-a-than-a life. Ericka Huggins George Jackson: Black Revolutionary By Walter Rodney, November 1971 To most readers in this continent, starved of authentic information by the imperialist news agencies, the name of George Jackson is either unfamiliar or just a name. The powers that be in the United States put forward the official version that George Jackson was a dangerous criminal kept in maximum security in Americas toughest jails and still capable of killing a guard at Soledad Prison. They say that he himself was killed attempting escape this year in August. Official versions given by the United States of everything from the Bay of Pigs in Cuba to the Bay of Tonkin in Vietnam have the common characteristic of standing truth on its head. George Jackson was jailed ostensibly for stealing 70 dollars. He was given a sentence of one year to life because he was black, and he was kept incarcerated for years under the most dehumanizing conditions because he discovered that blackness need not be a badge of servility but rather could be a banner for uncompromising revolutionary struggle. He was murdered because he was doing too much to pass this attitude on to fellow prisoners. George Jackson was political prisoner and a black freedom fighter. He died at the hands of the enemy. When he was killed in 1971, George Jackson was twenty nine years of age and had spent the last 11 years behind bars seven of these in special isolation. As he himself put it, he was from the lumpen. He was not part of the regular producer force of workers and peasants. Being cut off from the system of production, lumpen elements in the past rarely understood the society which victimized them and were not to be counted upon to take organized revolutionary steps within capitalist society. Indeed, the very term lumpen proletariat was originally intended to convey the inferiority of this sector as compared with the authentic working class. Yet George Jackson, like Malcolm X before him, educated himself painfully behind prison bars to the point where his clear vision of historical and contemporary reality and his ability to communicate his...
