Along the way, he learns of a plantation in North Carolina where his family was once enslaved. David discovers that the plantation is owned by a 62-year-old white man, who is a direct descendant of his family's slave master and is also named David Wilson.

Inside Folsom( Visual )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You like horror movies? responds a Folsom State Prison inmate when asked to describe life in the penitentiary. "This is a horror movie." Virtually every inmate who appears in this MSNBC documentary-and perhaps a few of Folsom's guards-seems to share his opinion. Viewers are guided through the prison's antiquated infrastructure, from the general population areas to the dungeon-like Cell Block 5, where the sun literally never shines. Conversations with lifers, corrections officers, and warden Diana Butler shed light on Folsom's violent culture and the procedures and programs developed to improve it. Despite rigid organization and work opportunities, the inmates interviewed tend to use the word "program" only in reference to unsupervised self-rehabilitation
