    Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award winning author and broadcast journalist. He has been languishing on Pennsylvania’s death row for over 25 yrs. Writing from a solitary confinement cell, his essays have reached a worldwide audience. Mumia is the author of five books including "Live From Death Row", "Death Blossoms", "All Things Censored", “Faith of Our Fathers” and the recently released “We Want Freedom.”

    They have sold over 150,000 copies and been translated into seven languages. His 1982 murder trial and subsequent conviction have been the subject of great debate.

    Mumia's insightful essays and melodic baritone breathe life into the numbing statistic — 5.1 million people under correctional control. Whether Mumia Abu-Jamal's voice will reach the airwaves, and ultimately whether he lives or dies, will be a true test of the strength of our struggle. It will also depend on our independence, the depth of our courage, and our will to organize.

    Legal Overview: “The government’s quest to murder in the name of the law is based upon its desire to silence Mumia’s voice and pen. This case has been riddled with racism and fraud since his arrest 1981. The trial was a travesty of justice. Mumia is innocent.” Robert R. Bryan, Esq.

    A decision in Mumia’s first and only federal habeas corpus appeal was issued on Dec. 18, 2001 by Judge William Yohn, U.S. District Court. In that ruling, Mumia’s death sentence was reversed, but his conviction was upheld. Both the Philadelphia DA and Mumia’s lawyers appealed. The Court granted the DA’s motion to keep Mumia on death row. If the appeal panel grants relief on Mumia’s death sentence, the case will go back for a re-trial on whether Mumia is again sentenced to death, or is to spend the remainder of his life

    in prison. Mumia's attorneys are seeking a completely new trial, and have issues pending in both state and federal courts. In order for Mumia to be released from prison he must first have a new trial. For legal updates and to see an excellent summary of the case visit:
