Racism and Injustice: The Trials of Mumia Abu-Jamal

July 2007 is 25 years that Mumia Abu-Jamal has been incarcerated on death row. To mark that anniversary, Pacifica Radio airs a one-hour national program. Our very special guest is Mumia himself, who granted Pacifica a rare interview. Other participants include: Robert R. Bryan Mumia’s lead attorney; actor and activist Danny Glover, journalist Dave Lindorff and others.

The show will give background on the racist miscarriage of justice Mumia confronts, describe startling new evidence, show the breadth of international support he has attracted, and give an update and analysis of the appeal for a new trial now being considered by a Federal Court.

Pacifica’s national special offers a fresh and vital reflection on the Abu-Jamal case, especially timely as the nation and the world await the Third Circuit Court’s ruling on Mumia’s final appeal, a verdict expected at any time.
