Panthers In The Hole
THE REAL-LIFE STORY OF THE ANGOLA 3: THREE AMERICANS WHO KEPT IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT FOR OVER A CENTURY BETWEEN THEM, IN THE LOUISIANA STATE PENITENTIARY KNOWN AS ANGOLA.In the early 1970s, deep in rural Louisiana, young inmates Robert H. King, Albert Woodfox, Herman Wallace were silenced for trying to expose continued segregation, inhumane conditions, and prisoner abuse at the 18,000-acre former slave plantation know as Angola. The men who became known as the Angola 3 served more than a combined century in solitary confinement, before Albert Woodfox, the last member to remain incarcerated, was released in 2016.Panthers In The Hole is a dramatic story of courage, perseverance and solidarity inside a prison system that seems more at home in a totalitarian regime than the contemporary United. Featuring an afterward by Angola 3 member Robert H. King and an appendix detailing the use of solitary confinement in the United States, Panthers In The Hole was produced in partnership with Amnesty International. “How can we subject prisoners to unnecessary solitary confinement, knowing it’s effects, and then expect them to return to our communities as whole people? It doesn’t make us safer. It’s an affront to our common humanity.” ~Barack Obama~By: BURNO CENOU & DAVID CENOU TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY: OLIVIA TAYLOR SMITH Email us from our website homepage or at email@example.com for Curbside pickups & Delivery options (local orders only).
