Description: From 1991, our profile of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. The young African American boxer was on his way to a world title fight. But before that he became involved in a miscarriage of justice. In 1966, in Patterson, New Jersey he became a victim of racism and framed for murder. Carter might have spent his entire life in prison, except for an idealistic band of Canadians who decided to take up his cause. Hana Gartner profiles Carter and chronicles the struggle to clear his name.
