Robert King, Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace have been made famous by their treatment at the infamous Angola State Prison in Angola, Louisiana.

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.
