    • Synopsis
    • Herman Wallace, a former Black Panther member, has spent 40 years imprisoned in solitary confinement in a six-by-nine-foot cell for a crime many believe he never committed. In 2001, when young artist and activist Jackie Sumell asked him to collaborate on an art project by imagining his ideal house, it was the beginning of an extraordinary friendship and a journey into the racialized brutality of the American justice system.
