"In The Land Of The Free"
(Vadim Jean, 2010, 84 min.)
This 2010 documentary (narrated by Samuel L. Jackson) is about the Angola 3, three prisoners who while serving their time in Angola State Prison (the United States' most notorious penal colony) joined the BPP and participated in non- violent resistance campaigns protesting the terrible conditions, prisoner abuse and sexual slavery rampant inside the prison. As a result they were falsely accused of murder while in prison and have all been, with the exception of Robert King who was released in 2001, serving the last 38 years in solitary confinement.

Part of the '3rd Annual Black Panther Party Film Festival' Celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the founding of the BPP
THEME: Remembering our Political Prisoners

From the Black Panther 10 Point Program:
