The Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, holds more than five-thousand prisoners, mostly African Americans. In the 1970s, the state's politicians changed the definition of a life sentence. A life sentence in Louisiana now means just that. Unless they're pardoned by the Governor, inmates today know they will never again see the outside world -- that they will die inside Angola prison. Tossing Away the Keys is their story. There is an audio track as well as a written transcript.
