An important book [that] takes us into the bowels of hell. . . . Abu-Jamal offers expert and well-reasoned commentary on the justice system. . . . His writings are dangerous. –Village Voice
Resonates with the moral force of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter From Birmingham Jail. –Boston Globe
After twenty years on death row, Mumia Abu-Jamal has been released from his death sentence . . .but not the conviction. This once prominent radio reporter was convicted for the murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1982, after a trial many have criticized as profoundly biased. Live from Death Row is a collection of his prison writings–and impassioned yet unflinching account of the brutalities and humiliations of prison life, and a scathing indictment of racism and political bias in the American judicial system.
