Season 7 EP10: Rubin “Hurricane” Carter
On June 17, 1966, pro-boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter was arrested for triple homicide. He wasn’t at the scene of the crime. He didn’t know the victims. And he didn’t possess a weapon. Yet, an all-white jury convicted him. In this episode, we detail the appeal of his wrongful conviction, the media coverage, and his subsequent release from prison.
