From The Bottom Of The Heap
In 1970, a Jury convicted Robert H. King of a crime he did not commit and sentenced him to 35 years in prison. He became a member of the Black Panther Party while in Angola State Penitentiary, successfully organizing prisoners to improve conditions. In return, authorities beat him, starved him, and gave him life without parole after framing him for a second crime. He was thrown into solitary confinement, where he remained in a 6x9x12-foot cell for 29 years as one of the Angola 3. In 2001, the state grudgingly acknowledged he was innocent and set him free. From the Bottom of the Heap, is a story of growing up Black in the South that strips bare the economic and social injustices inherent in our society, while continuing to be a powerful literary testimony to our own strength and capacity to overcome.
