We are sad to report that Rubin “Hurricane” Carter has died in Toronto at the age of 76. Carter was an awesome professional boxer who was falsely convicted for a triple homicide and spent 19 years in jail as a result. Because of this, he became a staunch advocate for wrongly convicted inmates and was the main focus of the movie “The Hurricane” which led to a Denzel Washington Oscar Award nomination.
Please see the video below for more about the sad loss of Rubin Carter.
The Urban Daily sends our thoughts and condolences to the family, friends, fans and all who loved Rubin Carter. Job well done sir.
