"The House that Herman Built", living exhibit by Jackie Sumell
"WHAT KIND OF HOUSE DOES A MAN WHO HAS LIVED IN A 6' X9' BOX FOR OVER 30 YEARS DREAM OF?" This is the question that artist and activist Jackie Sumell asked Herman Wallace in 2003. Herman has been in solitary confinement
or Closed Cell Restriction [CCR] for over 40 years. He spend most of these years at The Louisiana State Penitentiary, also know as Angola. He is one of the "Angola 3" along with Robert King and Albert Woodfox.
Listen to Jackie recount how she became aware of Herman's condition and how they collaborated on an art exhibit meant to raise awareness about the prison industrial complex and the trauma of solitary confinement.
