|Title:||Free Albert Woodfox Campaign in Louisiana|
Robert King, one of the ‘Angola 3’ stands in front of a mural depicting his friend, Albert Woodfox. The mural in New Orleans, Louisiana, was painted by artist Brandan "B-Mike" Odums in conjunction with Amnesty International USA.
Albert Woodfox has spent 40 years in solitary confinement, locked up alone in a tiny cell with little natural light for 23 hours a day. He was convicted in 1973 for the murder of a prison guard the year before, while he was serving time for robbery. But Albert says he is an innocent man.
There was no physical evidence linking him to the crime, and his conviction relied primarily on the dubious testimony of another prisoner, who received a pardon in return. Albert believes his conviction was politically motivated because he was a member of the Black Panther Party, the radical black rights movement.
