Blood in My Eye is a collection of letters and essays about revolution, life in prison, and fascism in the United States, completed shortly before George Jackson was murdered in prison. While serving a one year to life prison term for robbing a gas station in 1961, Jackson had a political awakening and became a journalist, activist, and revolutionary while incarcerated. He later joined the Black Panther Party and became popular and influential from his first book Soledad Brother.

Jackson wrote this book for much more revolutionary times than our own, but it’s valuable for his position about how socialism in the U.S. isn’t possible unless the movement is anti-racist and anti-imperialist, and the role of the U.S. justice system in capitalist class domination.
