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 —  Political Prisoner Radio educates the public about the cases and stories of U.S. held political prisoners.
