Albert Woodfox

Albert Woodfox spent 40 years in solitary confinement for a crime he did not commit at Louisiana's infamous Angola prison -- this is the longest solitary confinement in American history. A committed activist while incarcerated, he remains so today, speaking to a wide array of audiences, including the Innocence Project, Harvard, Yale and other universities, the National Lawyers Guild, as well as at Amnesty International events in London, Paris, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium. His book is "Solitary."
