Hurricane's legacy is of truth trumping power
In 1974, my mother left her home in Galway and moved to Rahway, New Jersey, a town about 20 miles from New York, with a group of Irish nurses. At the time, the town's most famous resident lived in the maximum security prison on the outskirts of the town overlooking Highway 1&9. His name was Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter. He was wrongly convicted of killing three white men in a New Jersey bar.
