Summary
A spiritual as well as a factual autobiography, this is a self-portrait of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a 20th-century icon and controversial victim of the U.S. justice system turned spokesperson for the wrongfully convicted. Exploring Carters personal philosophy born of the unimaginable duress of wrongful imprisonment and conceived through his defiance of the brutal institution of prison and a decade of solitary confinement this work offers hope for those who have none and serves as a call to action for those who abhor injustice. Exposing the inherent flaws in the legal and penal systems, this autobiography also serves, as a prison survival manual be it a brick-and-mortar cell or the metaphorical prison of childhood abuse, racism, and despair
Summary
Tells the story of Carter's spiritual journey during his twenty years of imprisonment and afterward, detailing the battles he has fought and continues to fight on behalf of the wrongly convicted
