     In a matter of days, the White House has gone through its latest purge. Gone are stalwarts of the GOP, men like journalist Sean Spicer and former Republican National Committee chief, Reince Priebus, Trump’s former Press Secretary and Chief of Staff respectively.
    Spicer contorted himself like a pretzel trying to please his boss, but his efforts only led to more […]

    AUGUST 8th –TODAY

    AUGUST 8th –TODAY
    [Speech writ. 7/19/17] ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     Early morning.
    A time of rest, quiet and repose.
    On August 8th, 1978, only the early birds in search of worms were stirring.
    Also, cops assembled, heavily armed.
    They attacked the MOVE House in Powelton Village, West Philadelphia, dozens, then hundreds and perhaps thousands of shots poured into the home. How could we know the number? For before night fell, the building […]

    FRANTZ FANON: REVOLUTIONARY JOURNALIST (25.6.2017)

    [col. writ. 6/25/17] ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal

    Those who have studied the global Black Revolution of the 20th century have had to read the masterwork of Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth, which was known as ‘the handbook of the Black Revolution’, from Accra (in Ghana) to Oakland, California, USA.
    This work, as much a psychological study as a diagnosis of the nature of French colonialism in […]

    ‘OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES’ (21.6.2017)

    ‘OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES’

     They are children, learning about the world they are about to inherit.
    And like all children, they are curious.
    They heard about the MOVE Bombing in West Philadelphia, which happened decades before they were born.
    The more they learned, the more questions arose in their minds.
    ‘The cops bombed a house? With women and children in it?’
    In Philadelphia?
    With children […]

    My Heartfelt ‘Thank You’! (Column)

    From Mumia Abu-Jamal
     *transcription from audio courtesy of Noelle Hanrahan, Prison Radio
    Several days ago I received a message from both of our lawyers, Bob Boyle and Bret Grote, informing me that the latest lab tests came in from the Discovery Requests. 
    And they told me that the Hepatitis C infection level is at zero and as of today I’m Hep C free.
    This is in part due to […]

    THE FALL
    [col. writ. 5/20/17] ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal
    It has been exceedingly difficult to write about the Trump presidency, seemingly crumbling before our eyes.
    In part that’s because of the sheer pace of new revelations, scandals superseded by new scandals, the inane utterances (and tweets) of the President, a daily cascade of craziness.
    Part of this is the news media, which rushes at us on a 24-hour […]

    Politics and the Will to Power (2:32) Mumia Abu-Jamal (Column + Prison Radio, down)

    [col. writ. 5/11/17]. ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal
    It’s easy to damn the realm of politics; it’s dirty; distrustful, and generally a rather greasy business. It is telling that the average politician today runs on the proposition that s/he isn’t a politician!
    Among radicals and revolutionaries politics is seen as something that is unclean; even tainted.
    But revolutionaries aren’t priests. They are often pushed to shatter barriers that have once […]

    NEO-LIBERAL UTOPIAS–AND NIGHTMARES

    [col. writ. 5/7/17] ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     Acclaimed science fiction writer, Ursula Le Guin, in her book, The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas, crafts a tale that crackles with the electricity of life.
    This is not a book review, nor really a review of her sci-fi novel, for, in truth, I’ve not read it.
    But I have read the introduction of scholar/ philosopher, Elizabeth Pivonelli’s work, Economies of […]

    For those who are familiar with this writer’s work, the name Dennis ‚Solo‘ McKeithan should come as no surprise, for it surfaced in my first book (Live From Death Row), and also was a subject of a recent commentary on how a jailhouse lawyer (Solo) rumbled for – and won! – better health care for […]

    PHIL AFRICA: MOVE MEMBER

    [col. writ. 4/16/17] ©’17 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     Early in the year of 1956, a brown baby boy was born, and named William Phillips. Who knew he would grow up into a man known widely as Phil Africa?
    For those who knew him, he was Phil Africa, a revolutionary member of the MOVE Organization and its Minister of Defense.
    For those who knew him, they could never forget his broad, […]
