"IN PRISON MY WHOLE LIFE"
A look at the life of imprisoned political activist and former Black Panther member, Mumia Abu-Jamal, whose death sentence for killing a police officer was overturned in 2001 due to errors made during his original 1982 sentencing hearing. Mumia still faces capital punishment because Lynn Abraham, the presiding DA is appealing the case to the highest court in the land. It is likely the death sentence will be overturned.
