mumia-themovie.com — "A compelling documentary about a riveting historical figure... The narrative line is like a tone poem, with a who’s who of storytellers woven by Vittoria into a coherent narrative, with each one playing a brilliantly cast role: their own."-Eric Mann, War Resisters League “After 30 years in prison, Mumia Abu-Jamal still has the ability to provoke, educate and inspire, for those willing to listen. Attempts to silence Abu-Jamal—and the powers that be are nothing if not persistent—have failed. Through interviews and readings from his books (written in longhand, without benefit of online resources), his voice comes through clear as a bell in this inspiring portrait that throws a powerful punch for freedom of expression and democracy. Obscured in the long-standing controversy over his conviction for the shooting death of a Philadelphia police officer in 1981, and his adoption as a bumper-sticker symbol of injustice and racism, has been the fact that Abu-Jamal was and is a gifted journalist and brilliant writer. A potent chorus of prominent voices (comprised of Cornel West, Alice Walker, Dick Gregory, Angela Davis, Amy Goodman and others) lends fine support, but it’s the words and insights of the man himself that stick with you.” — Film Critic Michael Fox

lookingbacklookingforward.com — Looking Back Looking Forward (LBLF) originated as a weekend, news round-up, discussion programme on Newstalk 93 FM radio (Jamaica ) in 2007. After four years, LBLF grew to become the station’s and the country’s number one listened to current affairs programme. It also developed a large and loyal international following. LBLF, conceived, produced and hosted by Lloyd D’Aguilar was discontinued in March 2011 after D’Aguilar was summarily fired by Newstalk at the instigation of the country’s Broadcasting Commission for speaking out against the firing of fellow talk show host Kingsley Ragshanti Stewart from Nationwide News radio, also at the instigation of the Broadcasting Commission. D’Aguilar has since been prevented from working at another radio station by the Broadcasting Commission. Undaunted by the heavy hand of censorship, LBLF represents a transition to this new uncensored internet format to continue the mission of facilitating radical discussion of international and local Jamaican politics.
