BOOK PARTY FOR MUMIA’S ‘HAVE BLACK LIVES EVER MATTERED’!

 

          On Saturday, October 14th, the MAPSO Freedom School will host a Book Party for Mumia Abu Jamal’s new book ‘Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?’

          It will take place at Columbia High School’s Black Box Theatre, located at 17 Parker Avenue, Maplewood NJ at 6pm.

          The event is free but registration is required. Contact MAPSO atMapsofreedomschool@gmail.com.

          Mumia Abu Jamal is perhaps the best known political prisoner in the world.

          A founding member of the Philadelphia chapter of the Black Panther Party at only 15, his revolutionary brand of journalism has endeared him to an international audience for decades!

          Framed for killing a Philadelphia police officer in 1981, Abu Jamal has survived 34 years on death row and most recently a near fatal encounter with untreated Hepatitis C which left him with Cirrhosis of the liver. Although an epic grassroots based legal struggle secured him long needed medical attention, he has suffered some side effects from the new treatments.

          On December 9th, the anniversary of the beginning of his tormented legal ordeal, he will again be the subject of a major demonstration in Philadelphia.

          The new book is incredibly his seventh full book since his ordeal began and his eighth overall.

          Pam Africa will lead a discussion on his current circumstances and upcoming support actions…
