|Issues I care about||
38 years ago in Louisiana, 3 young black men were silenced for trying to expose continued segregation, systematic corruption, and horrific abuse in the biggest prison in the US, an 18, 000-acre former slave plantation called Angola. In 1972 and 1973 prison officials charged Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox, and Robert King with murders they did not commit and threw them into 6×9 ft. cells in solitary confinement, for over 38 years. Robert was freed in 2001, but Herman and Albert remain behind bars.
