Surviving the Solitary

"I’ve always considered myself a political prisoner. Not in the sense that I’m here for a political crime, but in the sense that I’m here because of a political system that has failed me terribly as an individual and citizen in this country.” Albert Woodfox

One of the last Black Panthers comes out after more than 40 years in a solitary. An incredible story of persistence. The perfect weekend reading in this week New Yorker.
