I ordered a book in 2003 or 2004 called The Sixteenth Round by Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter and it's about his life as a boxer and how he went from the top contender for the middle weight boxing crown to a prisoner after witnesses testified that he was one of the shooters, along with a young fan named John Artis, of multiple murders in Paterson, New Jersey. Years later, it was discovered that the witnesses and the prosecuters put the wrong people in prison, but by then the damages were already done! Both men lost years of their lives, and Carter's marriage had ended years before, when he and his lawyers were caught up in dozens of appeals with the New Jersey and U.S. Judicial Systems. This is a must-read for those who enjoy reading African-American authors, reading about the 50's and 60's, boxing and boxers, and American history!
