    ITEM#: 12748726

    The recipient of two honorary doctor of law degrees, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter is former chair and CEO of Canada’s Association in Defense of the Wrongfully Convicted and currently serves as CEO of Innocence International. His life is the subject of the film The Hurricane, starring Denzel Washington. Ken Klonsky is a freelance writer and a prisoners’ advocate. Former antiapartheid activist, leader of the African National Congress, and president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela is a Nobel laureate and an international advocate for human rights.

    Eye of the Hurricane: My Path from Darkness to Freedom is a self-portrait of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a twentieth-century icon and controversial victim of the U.S. justice system turned spokesperson for the wrongfully convicted. In this moving narrative Dr. Carter tells of all the "prisons" he has survived--from his childhood through his wrongful incarceration and after. A spiritual as well as a factual autobiography, Eye of the Hurricane explores Carter's personal philosophy, born of the unimaginable duress of wrongful imprisonment and conceived through his defiance of the brutal institution of prison and ten years of solitary confinement. His is not a comfortable story or a comfortable philosophy, but it offers hope for those who have none and serves as a call to action for those who abhor injustice. Eye of the Hurricane may well change the way we view crime and punishment in the twenty-first century.
