At the height of his career, boxer Rubin Carter was twice wrongly convicted of a triple murder and was imprisoned for nearly two decades. His convictions were overturned in 1985 by a Federal judge and he dedicated the rest of his life to advocating for the wrongly convicted. His story inspired the 1975 Bob Dylan song 'Hurricane' and the 1999 film 'The Hurricane,' starring Denzel Washington.
