Broken Spirits allows readers to encounter two stories of oppression and social injustice experienced by Averette and King, while gaining a vividly human side of the under-privileged communities struggles which plagued many inner cities. Broken Spirits is a unique memoir which not only tells Averettes story, but allowed other races to voice their experiences and opinions regarding the calamity suffered by thousands during the 1992 L.A. riots as well, through the interviews conducted by Michele L Waters.
