CRUEL AND UNUSUAL
CRUEL AND UNUSUAL has been eight years in the making. But that’s nothing compared to the 43 years that Albert Woodfox spent in a 6 foot by 9 foot cell for a crime he did not commit. That’s Forty Three Years. Woodfox and Herman Wallace have spent longer in solitary confinement than any other prisoners in the United States. Together with Robert King, who was released in 2001 after 29 years in solitary, they have become known as the Angola 3. And this is their extraordinary story.
