In 2013 an artist and activist named Fury Young was reading The New Jim Crow and listening to Pink Floyd and decided to create a concept album The project started with a recording of Albert Woodfox the legendary formerly incarcerated activist and author who spent over 40 years in solitary confinement….somehow between that original project and now, Die Jim Crow became a record label.
