Day 352. Sat, April 17 2010

With love and solidarity

April 17 marks the 38th year of solitary confinement for Herman Wallace & Albert Woodfox for a crime they did not commit.

In 2003, artist Jackie Sumell asked Herman, one of the two unreleased prisoners of the Angola3, a very simple question:
"What kind of a house does a man who has lived in a 6' x 9' box for over 30 years dream of?"

The answer to this question has manifested a remarkable project principled in social sculpture, community outreach, benevolence and the ultimate power of the imagination, called The House That Herman Built >

Also, a new documentary titled In the Land of the Free, narrated by Samuel Jackson has just been released about the Angola3. All Power To The People.
