Robert King, Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace have been made famous by their treatment at the infamous Angola State Prison in Angola, Louisiana. Named for a former slave plantation, the prison, according to Mr. King; the only member of the Angola Three both alive and free, holds the record for keeping someone in solitary confinement. In the case of Mr. Woodfox, he's spent 23 hours a day in a 6x9 foot cell for 41 years. Don Merrill talks with Robert King about the necessity to define oneself, the coming to terms with bitterness and why the bigger story isn't about the three men themselves, but the movement to end unlawful solitary confinement.
