Robert King, Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace have been made famous by their treatment at the infamous Angola State Prison in Angola, Louisiana. Named for a former slave plantation, the prison, according to Mr. King; the only member of the Angola Three both alive and free, holds the record for keeping someone in solitary confinement.
