"Hurricane" Carter

Rubin Carter, known as Hurricane Carter, died yesterday at the age of 76. He was an American middleweight boxer who spent almost 20 years in prison after being convicted of a murder he had not committed. HIs life was depicted in both a film and a song.

Bob Dylan believed that Carter was innocent and wrote the song "Hurricane". Listen to it and read the lyrics as you watch the video. Afterwards, write Carter´s biography, from your point of view, according to your interpretation of the song. Remember to include the answers to the 5 wh- questions: who? when? where? what? why?

The film "The Hurricane" focuses on Carter´s unfair incarceration and on the people who helped to set him free. Denzel Washington got an Oscar nomination for this film - and should have got it, in my view...

  1. Rubin Carter was an middleweight boxer who was blame for a murder that he never done. One night, in a Bar in New Jersey were found two dead bodies and a survivor of the attack, and two thieves who said that the murdes had just gone in a white car and they looked like middleweight boxers. So, the polices arrested Rubin, and even a survivor said that he wasn't the man, Carter, judged 4 months later by white people and with the lies of the two thieves, gone to prision and ended up the chances of becoming 'the champion of the world'
