THE BALTIMORE SUN

In a memo circulating the Internet, the warden of the Maryland Correctional Training Center in Hagerstown said that “Marshall Law – The Life & Times of a Baltimore Black Panther” the autobiography of inmate Marshall “Eddie” Conway was being banned and should be “confiscated and disposed of … at the inmate’s expense” if found. Prison officials confirmed the authenticity of the memo.
David Rocah, a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, called the book ban “flagrantly unconstitutional.”
