43 years in solitary

posted by Jason Kottke   May 03, 2016

Albert Woodfox describes what it feels like to be on the outside after spending 43 years in solitary confinement.

You know, human beings are territorial, they feel more comfortable in areas they are secure. In a cell you have a routine, you pretty much know what is going to happen, when it’s going to happen, but in society it’s difficult, it’s looser. So there are moments when, yeah, I wish I was back in the security of a cell.
