Cummings, AR. February 1968.
A man with his lower leg amputated and supported by a makeshift crutch joins fellow prisoners waiting outside the dining hall at the Cummins unit of Arkansas State Penitentiary. The corruption scandal of the historical penitentiary inspired the 1980 film Brubaker, which chronicled the warden's inside investigation into the corrupt southern prison system.
