From the back:

Rubin Carter was more than a boxer, a man who once knocked out a horse with a right cross. A former juvenile criminal in between a spell as a U.S. paratrooper, he ran guns for Steve Biko in South Africa, and was a passionate advocate of Black power in the 1960s. He was also the victim of one of America’s most celebrated legal battles and drew support from, among others, Bob Dylan and Muhammad Ali. His is a fighter’s story of jailhouse redemption and heroic endurance.
