0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: A terminally ill former Black Panther who spent 40 years in solitary confinement for murder, was set free on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) after a judge reversed his controversial 1974 conviction for murder. Herman Wallace, 72, who is dying from liver cancer, is one of the “Angola three,” named after a notorious prison where they were held, built on the site of a former plantation worked by slaves from Africa.
