Sojourner's Place

louisiana justice. cruel and unusual.

Innocent. And in solitary for 35 years. Take action to achieve justice for the Angola 3.

Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox have have endured 35 years of solitary confinement after being framed in a murder that everyone now knows they didn't commit—locked up for daring to speak out against inhumane conditions in Angola, Louisiana State Penitentiary. They now spend every day in a 6x9 foot cell on the site of a former plantation.

As with the Jena 6, we're seeing another example of Louisiana's sense of justice—unfair and unaccountable—and funded by our tax dollars. Please in demanding a full and fair investigation into the case of the Angola 3 and the Louisiana Prison system.

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner('s Place) ain't got nothing more to say.

2 sojourners hollin' back


I was in solitary for just 9 days before being released into general population. After 4 days, I began to have periods of panic and I had to consciously calm myself and practice various physical exercise. I can not even begin to fathom what 35 years in solitary feels like.
