Brothers, Sisters, Comrades, and Friends -  we are saddened to share the news that Samiya “Goldi” Davis Abdullah, daughter of Wadiyah Jamal and Mumia Abu-Jamal, passed away earlier today after a long fight with breast cancer.  Born in 1978, she was just 36 years old.  She had just finished a Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania and is survived by two young daughters. 
(Goldi visits Mumia in 1981 at Graterford where he was held awaiting trial.)
Known as “Goldi”, she was a rapper of lyrical grace and sharp, pointed consciousness, one who used her spoken word skills to highlight issues of racial inequality, criminal (in)justice, and always to promote Black liberation.  From a daughter’s perspective, she was an dynamic spokesperson, speaking stirringly of the impact incarceration has on children and families.  She was also a staunch advocate on behalf of her father’s innocence.  The irregularities of his trial & sentencing were also subjects she rapped on.
