Albert Woodfox on solitary confinement, the Black Panthers, and fighting ‘the system’

Albert Woodfox was one of the ‘Angola Three’, the three African-American former prison inmates who were held for decades in solitary confinement.

Woodfox has recently published his book ‘Solitary’, retelling the story of the 44 years and 10 months he spent inside for a crime he didn’t commit.

He speaks to Krish about how he stayed sane whilst imprisoned, why he became attracted to the Black Panther movement and how he is still fighting against ‘the system’.

Warning: Very strong and racially sensitive language.
