THE 30 YEAR LONG LYNCHING OF GLENN FORD

Feeling Rebloggy


"Glenn Ford’s case is nothing special and, at the same time, is very special...because it involves racism so egregious that even the white legal system has conceded it."


"Here are the gory details of this real-life horror story.


In 1983, the 34-year-old Mr. Ford, from Shreveport, La., was framed by a white detective for the murder of a white man. In 1984, he was prosecuted by a white assistant district attorney and found guilty by an all-white jury. In 1988, he was sentenced by a white judge to death in the electric chair. Oh, by the way, there was no physical evidence connecting him to the crime. No murder weapon was ever found. And another man confessed. Despite that, Mr. Ford spent 30 years on death row in a 5 x 7-foot cell for 23 of 24 hours every single day in the notorious Louisiana State Prison, better known as Angola."
