Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award-winning journalist, humanist, advocate for social justice, and “Voice of the Voiceless” who has been wrongfully imprisoned on Pennsylvania’s death row for the last 28 years. A recent Supreme Court decision has made Mumia vulnerable to execution.
Mumia is at a crossroads, as are many in this “age of Obama.” Join us as we ignite a real conversation about the racialized character of mass incarceration in America, and of U.S. Human Rights violations nationally and internationally, which still have such grave consequences for peace, the world economy, gender relations, and the environment.
