Details

The finest radio political journalism from the world's most famous political prisoner. Herein you'll find a collection of audio essays spanning Mumia's career, all on CD for the first time. Some are new, including one on the 2000 Presidential elections; some are newly released from the NPR archive; some are vintage recordings from his days as a freeworld radio journalist, including his classic interviews with Bob Marley, Hugh Masekela, Ruby Dee and his coverage of the conflicts between MOVE and the Philadelphia police. Interspersed with Mumia's work, the CD contains both readings of Mumia's work, and statements, from the likes of his son, Mazi Jamal, Assata Shakur, Martin Espada, Peter Coyote, Rubin Hurricane Carter, Michael Franti and Marc Bamuthi Joseph amongst others. Finally, three musical tracks round off the project, including the "Rocks The World" mix of the now legendary Mumia 911 Unbound Allstars (featuring Chuck D, Zach De La Rocha, Dead Prez and Pharaohe Monch), and a new track from Seeds Of Wisdom. A compelling portrait of Mumia over a thirty year period.
