Live from Death Row
A rare and courageous voice speaking from a place we fear to know: Mumia Abu-Jamal must be heard. --Alice Walker
Resonates with the moral force of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Letter From Birmingham Jail. -Boston Globe
After twenty years on death row, Mumia Abu-Jamal was released from his death sentence . . . but not the conviction. This once prominent radio reporter was convicted for the murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1982, after a trial many have criticized as profoundly biased. Live from Death Row is a collection of his prison writings--an impassioned yet unflinching account of the brutalities and humiliations of prison life, and a scathing indictment of racism and political bias in the American judicial system.
