This powerful investigation of political imprisonment gives a new voice to the Angola 3, a trio of Louisiana inmates who represent the only prison chapter of the Black Panther Party. Once inside the walls of the notoriously violent and racist institution, the Angola 3 fought to end the inhumane treatment of prisoners, a stance which landed each of them in one of the longest stints in solitary confinement on record. THE ANGOLA 3: BLACK PANTHERS AND THE LAST SLAVE PLANTATION features interviews with the activists themselves, as well as other political prisoners and revolutionaries.
