My People are Rising: A Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain is the most authentic book ever written by a member of the Black Panther Party. Aaron Dixon does a superb job of presenting life in the party from the perspective of a foot soldier – a warrior for the cause of revolutionary change and black power in America. He pulls no punches and holds nothing back in writing honestly about those times (late 1960’s and during the 1970’s) as he successfully presents a visual picture fo the courage, commitment, and sometimes shocking brutality of life as a Panther activist.
