For anyone who is reading this and doesn’t know me, the case of The Angola Three, men incarcerated in solitary confinement for thirty-six years in Angola, Louisiana, is one that is close to my heart and one that I have done a fair bit of work on. I filmed Robert King Wilkerson when he walked free in 2001 and it is a day I will never, ever forget.
The full case is too much to write about in one posting; if you are interested in knowing more check the website here.
Recently the A3 case has gotten more publicity, and now MSNBC has done a story on them. I think it’s pretty good, all things considered. The A3 site above has a link to it, and here is a direct one.
