This morning we spoke with Michael Mable, younger brother of Albert Woodfox, one of the men known as The Angola 3, incarcerated for over 36 years,nearly all of it in solitary confinement. His case has recently been overturned in the Lousiana courts, yet state prosecutors are resorting to intimidation and slander to keep Woodfox behind bars. We have been hosting comrades and friends: supporters of A3 and this morning is the first opportunity we've had to talk to a family member. In this hour long conversation, we hear about Woodfox the surrogate father to his younger siblings in a poor single parent household, where his mother had to provide for the family. Visit www.angola3.org to find about more about the case and to get names and addresses and phone numbers to write the court. To get in contact with Albert Woodfox: #72148 Camp D, Eagle 1 Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola LA 70712, USA and Herman Wallace, the other still incarcerated member of A3:#76759 Camp D, Eagle 1, Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, LA, 70712,USA. Robert King is the only exonerated member and he can be reached at: c/o Kings Freelines, 2008 New York Av. #B, Austin, Texas 78702, kingsfreelines@gmail.com. King is in San Francisco now promoting his book: From the Bottom of the Heap on PM Press. You can meet him this Friday, Nov. 21, 7 PM at Babylon Falling in San Francisco. Tonight check out the Community Screening of March Point at the Oakland Museum of CA, 1000 Oak Street, Oakland. The event starts at 6 PM. I was expecting a call from the director but something must have come up. The film will screen on KQED this week also. Visit kqed.org
