The Angola 3: Black Panthers And The Last Slave Plantation

The Angola 3: Black Panthers and the Last Slave Plantation 
tells the gripping story of Robert H. King, Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox, men who have endured solitary confinement longer then any known living prisoner in the United States. Politicized through contact with the Black Panthers Party While inside Louisiana’s Prison, they formed one of the only prison Panther Chapters in history and worked to organize other prisoners into a movement for the right to live like human beings. This feature length documentary explores their extraordinary struggle for justice while incarcerated in Angola, a former slave plantation where institutionalized rape and murder made it known as one of the most brutal and racist prisons in the United States. The analysis of the Angola 3’s political work, and the criminal cases used to isolate and silence them, occurs within the context of the widespread COINTELPRO being carried out in the 1960’s and 70’s by the FBI and state law enforcement against militant voices for change. 

In a partial victory, the courts exonerated Robert King Wilkerson of the original charges and released him in 2001. He continued to fight for the freedom of his two brothers. The ongoing campaign, which includes a civil case soon to cone before the Supreme Court, is supported by people and organizations such as Amnesty International, the A.C.L.U, Harry Belafonte, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, Ramsey Clark, Sen. John Conyers, Sister Helen Prejean, (the late) Anita Roddick, Bishop Desmond TuTu and the ANC. Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox have endured as Political Prisoners in solitary confinement for over thirty-five years.

Narrated by Mumia Abu-Jamal, The Angola 3 features interviews with former Panthers, Political Prisoners and Revolutionaries, including the Angola 3 themselves, and Bo Brown,(the late) Geronimo (Ji Jaga)Prat, Malik Rahiem, Yuri Shaw and many Others.
