Black Panther Albert Woodfox Finally Free

Black Panther finally free after 43 years in solitary confinement.
Albert Woodfox was convicted twice for killing a prison guard in 1972 but a judge ordered his release last summer.

The former Black Panther was kept behind bars by a federal appeals court as the state of Louisiana, where he was imprisoned, lodged a challenge against his release.

His release on Friday came after the state dropped the threat of a third murder charge in exchange for Woodfox pleading no contest to lesser charges.
