“Slavery is back.  In fact, it was never abolished.  In 1865, the 13th Amendment to the US constitution abolished slavery except in prison.  At the current rate of incarceration, by the year 2010 the majority of all African-American men between the ages of 18 and 40 will be in prison—the state their captor and their labor on the auction block.”                       - Dr. Howard Zinn  photo by Robin Holland

Manning Marable supports Mumia Abu-Jamal and the work of Prison Radio.

“The voice of Black political journalism in the struggle for the liberation of African-American people has always proved to be decisive throughout Black history.  From David Walker’s appeal in 1829, to the political journalism of Frederick Douglass, to the Black Panther newspaper.  When you listen to Mumia you hear the echoes of David Walker, Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. DuBois, Paul Robeson, and the sisters and brothers who kept the faith with struggle, who kept the faith with resistance.
