Summary
"This pamphlet was written by a man in death row at San Quentin prison, by a man who is condemned to die for throwing a cuspidor at a guard. The story -- assembled from letters and legal documents written during Wells' long sojourn in condemned row -- is being published so that the public may know the true story of the man the governor of the state of California dismisses brusquely as 'a five-time felon.' Wells' case is now on appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court on the ground he has been denied the "due process" of law guaranteed him by the U.S. Constitution. On these dramatic pages you will find the story of what it is like to be a Negro in the prison system of the supposedly enlightened state of California" -- Publisher's note, p. [2] of wrappers
