Inhaltsangabe: Life After Life is the haunting and gloriously redemptive tale of Evans D. Hopkins's many lives, a sweeping journey from promising middle-class youth to civil rights militant, from criminal and convict to celebrated writer and enlightened man.
Evans D. Hopkins was born during the Jim Crow era in a second-rate, segregated hospital, and educated in segregated primary schools in Danville, Virginia, a town that proudly proclaimed itself the "Last Capital of the Confederacy." With parents who stressed the value of education, as a teenager he was in the forefront of desegregation and the Civil Rights Movement. At the same time, he fell in love with the traditionally white man's game of tennis, modeling himself after his idol, the legendary Arthur Ashe, only to be swept off the courts by the Black Panther Party at the age of sixteen.
Just out of high school, Hopkins moved to Panther headquarters in Oakland, California, where he spent two years writing for the Party newspaper, covering the trial of the San Quentin Six, working with Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, and taking part in their move into politics when Seale ran for mayor of Oakland. He became historian for the group, documenting the years when altercations with authorities resulted in the deaths of numerous Panthers. And he was witness to the internal strife within the Party that led to the group's decline and his own decision to leave in the fall of 1974.
When he returned to Danville, Hopkins was a different man, disillusioned and filled with rage and a legacy of militancy. He was, in his own words, "the quintessential angry young black man." Convicted of armed robbery and given a life sentence, Hopkins would spend twenty of the next twenty-two years in the prisons of Virginia. Inside, fighting despair and isolation and dreaming of escape, Hopkins sought salvation in the written word, writing in his cell in the early morning hours to escape the noise of the prison. Focusing on issues of social and criminal injustice, Hopkins would begin reaching a national audience when his inside account of an execution, "Who's Afraid of Virginia's Chair," was published in The Washington Post.
Paroled in 1997, Hopkins returned home, a free man at last, but facing the overwhelming challenges of caring for his aging parents and daily life in a world that was new after so many years of incarceration.
In this stunning look back at a man's struggle with himself and the world around him, Life After Life is also about the influences that sustained Hopkins's development despite overwhelming odds, influences that allowed him to emerge from two decades of imprisonment an uncorrupted man, still able to give to his family and community. Finally, Life After Life is a searingly honest view of events in America in the second half of the 20th century as seen through the eyes of a child, a militant, a prisoner, and, most important, a writer.

From the Inside Flap: "Life After Life is a wonderful autobiography and a touching and enlightening story. Evans Hopkins' writing is vivid and compelling, specifically the passages about his attempted escapes, the atrocities of prison, and his discovery of the love he has for humanity even though it is often unlovable. His honesty about his own culpability rings through clearly and courageously." --Sandra Brown

"Life After Life is a low-keyed but compelling account of the Black Panther Party’s impact, both positive and negative, on a young, southern, black man’s journey to completeness in racist America. Evans D. Hopkins has bared his soul to help us understand why thousands like him took up the extreme challenge, and are better for it." --David Graham Du Bois, President & CEO, The W. E. B. Du Bois Foundation, Inc.

"Evans D. Hopkins reminds us of what happens to a dream deferred in this powerful story of a youth almost destroyed by his anger at a society that at best ignores a black man and at worst finds new ways to lynch him. What makes this book remarkable is the journey to redemption, the story of how the lost youth finds himself in the silence of a prison cell and continues to grow as a human today. We should all rejoice!" —Patrice Gaines, author of Laughing In The Dark

"Life After Life is the story of the search for identity, one man's struggle to create a more just world, the descent into inexplicable rebellion and crime, and the ways in which prison can set a person free. This is a beautiful, heartbreaking, and, in the end, inspiring book." --Marita Golden, author of Don't Play in the Sun: One Woman's Journey Through the Color Complex
