* The uprising at Attica Prison remains one of the bloodiest civil rights confrontations in American history ... but without Frank "Big Black " Smith it could have been even worse. Now for the first time, the late Frank "Big Black " Smith shares his experience at the center of this uprising, struggling to protect hostages, prisoners and negotiators alike.
* Before his death, Frank "Big Black" Smith worked with Jared Reinmuth, the son of his lawyer, to share the true story of his time in Attica State Prison. Adapted to a graphic novel by Ameziane (Dark Horse 's Muhammad Ali), this is an unflinching look at the price of standing up to injustice.
