From the Bottom of the Heap
The Autobiography of Black Panther Robert Hillary KingBook - 2012
From the Bottom of the Heap is the revised autobiography of Robert Hillary King, the only freed member of the Angola 3. After being convicted of a crime he did not commit in 1970, King was sent to Angola State Penitentiary where he became a Black Panther and tirelessly worked to improve conditions for prisoners. After years of beatings, starvation and solitary confinement, he was declared innocent in 2001. Somehow he never lost his humanity. In this book, King strips bare society's worth injustices and remains a beacon of human strength and capacity to overcome.
