Solitary -- Albert Woodfox

Staff Pick

Albert Woodfox was held in solitary confinement for more than 45 years, longer than any prisoner in our nation’s history. Framed for the murder of a white prison guard in 1972 in retaliation for his membership in the Black Panther Party, he was confined to a 6-by-9 foot cell 23 hours a day, and routinely subjected to abuse and injustice. He maintained his dignity and humanity by reading works of literature, philosophy, history, and law, transforming his cell into his own university. His extraordinary memoir chronicles his experiences with insight and wisdom, vividly exposing just how broken our criminal justice system is.
