As far as I’m concerned America has never been a place, especially for minorities, for where dreams are achieved, it’s has been nothing short of illusions in which people have been fooled by it’s rhetoric about freedom, democracy, and prosperity for all. Few books that I’ve read so eloquently highlight the injustices of this country than Mumia Abu-Jamal’s "Live from Death Row", and "All Things Censored".

It’s amazing that Mumia, who has spent over twenty years on death row, can so eloquently cri

A collection of essays from previous volumes, this book covers a lot of ground on a lot of subjects. Mumia Abu Jamal's prose is poetic and incisive with deep humanity. His perpective as a death row inmate, informed by his depth of study and knowledge on African-American heritage and issues, combines with his journalistic training to give a potent voice in today's American wilderness. To anyone who has yet to become familiar with his work, I say pick up this book!

A book for my "Political Violence and Revolution" class in college. This one has made a lasting impact. I have gone online to look at both sides of this story, and on the other side is a family who lost a loved one. It's sad. I think there is good evidence that Mumia didn't receive a fair trial, but I also think there's some good evidence that he did in fact commit the crime or was an accomplice. No matter what, the book is one that stayed with me and it's a "thinking" book, that's for sure.

If I remember correctly, this is a collection of essays that Mumia Abu-Jamal wrote for public radio. I think he was going to read them over the phone and they were going to be played on National Public Radio. But somehow this plan became controversial and the idea was nixed. Maybe by this point these essays have been broadcast, but it was all quite a mess at the time.
