Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal Video

On April 29, 2006, a newly constructed street in Saint-Denis, (a town of 100,000 bordering Paris), was named Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal. In attendance was the mayor, deputy mayors, representatives of International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC), and a large and very diverse group of individuals and organizations from France and the Carribean. Julia Wright, daughter of the lated noted writer Richard Wright, speaks of the significance of this event as well as the 2003 granting of honorary citizenship to Mumia by the City of Paris, in the following video.
