Five Percent:
Lord Premier was playing chess when the guards came for him. They entered his cell, cuffed him, took his books and papers. At first, they wouldn’t tell him what he had done. They carted him off to a prison within a prison at the Evans Correctional Institution in Bennettsville, S.C., a maximum security institution of 1,000 inmates. There he spent 23 hours a day locked up. For his hour a day in the rec yard he was shackled hand and foot. His crime? He followed the teachings of the Five Percent.
