Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award-winning journalist who chronicles the human condition. He has been a resident of Pennsylvania's death row for twenty-five years. Writing from his solitary confinement cell his essays have reached a worldwide audience. His books "Live From Death Row", "Death Blossoms", "All Things Censored", "Faith of Our Fathers" and "We Want Freedom" have sold over 150,000 copies and been translated into nine languages. His 1982-murder trial and subsequent conviction have been the subject of great debate. Major issues in the trial have led to a worldwide campaign to gain Mumia a new trial and, ultimately, to gain his freedom.

he's still a human being...

to those who stumble upon this podcast, don't listen to the insensitive knocks on this work by the equally insentive people who wrote them. Despite the fact that Mumia Abu-Jamal is a resident of death row- albeit controvesially- he is still a fully capable human being, and a very intelligent one at that. Jamal was an accomplished writer, scholar, and voice of resistance before he went to prison. In the time he has spent at prison, he has continued to study and to further his immense knowledge on the human condtion and the current state of the world. Even if Jamal did kill a man 25 years ago, the man is a genius to say the least, and his words should not be taken lightly. If your skull is not too thick to let some intelligence through it, not unlike the previous reviewers, I would highly, highly recommend this podcast. Don't be superficial. Get past Jamal's apparent past and listen to what he has to say, you just might learn something.

Robots vs. Animals

It's so sad to see that people have judged this man in their reviews without taking a look at his case. Do not blindly accept what this government tells you as truth. Mumia Abu-Jamal whether you believe him to be innocent or not was NOT given a fair trial as he was rightfully due. If the govt. believes the man is guilty beyond shadow of a doubt, then why not give the man a fair and just trial? I believe that America has become a population of robots and animals. The robots are incapable of an independently intelligent thought, while the animals have become so apathetic that they rebel without a cause behaving in irrational and many times violent ways. Working 9 to 5, trying to keep our rent paid, striving to "get ahead" and excel in the daily rat race has many of caught in the matrix blind to what is transpiring right in front of our eyes. Mumia's words are an intelligent and analytical commentary from a man from the outside looking in. I say from the outside because maybe it us who are not "free". Peace.

Don't judge this podcast off of your prejudices

Whether or not Jamal killed that officer or not, the reviews are intended to be about his work on these essays, which are very good. Jamal is a very intelligent man and expresses his opinions well. 5 stars
