The shame of the USA,
This review is from: Hurricane: The Life of Rubin Carter, Fighter (Paperback)
Read it, read it, read it. This well written, true story about Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a pro boxer at the peak of his career, who was arrested with others on trumped up charges of murder.
The ensuing bias against the black defendants in a predominatly white environment, their incarceration and Rubin refusing to conform or admit to any of the charges. This, of course, as we know in GB, resulted in him & the others having their parole appeals consistently turned down.
How this man used his professional sport disciplines to cope with his imprisonment is testament to his massive inner strength.
A MUST READ, absolutely recommended, *****
