Rubin Carter’s Hurricane, Pt 2

Following incarceration in New Jersey for a multiple homicide he did not commit, Rubin Carter managed to emerge from prison in 1985 with an astounding attitude about life. A famous prize-fighter on the outside, Carter suffered great deprivation behind bars: Not only more than nineteen years of his life had been taken, he also lost his eye when a prison doctor botched a surgery. But as described in his memoir “Eye of the Hurricane”, Carter somehow pushed aside the bitterness that had consumed him. And he founded an organization dedicated to the legal defense of other prisoners who were falsely accused.
