Rubin (Hurricane) Carter, a professional boxer who served nearly 20 years in prison in New Jersey after being wrongfully convicted of a 1966 triple murder, became an international figure after his release as an advocate for others jailed for crimes they did not commit.


As a big Dylan fan for many, many years, Hurricane Carter's story was brought to my attention at a very early age. I suppose this thread could be in a few different forums, because his story was one of a boxer, a political activist, and one that many feel was a man imprisoned for a crime he did not commit for almost 20 years.

He passed today at the age of 76.
