Long Distance Revolutionary

M

Wednesday, December 10th 7pm at the Sol Collective (2574 21st St, Sacto)

On December 9, 1981, Mumia Abu-Jamal was arrested and accused of killing a Philadelphia cop in an incident in which he himself was severely wounded. He was subsequently convicted in a trial that provoked international outcry for it’s unfair and unjust proceedings.  Mumia was then held in isolation on Death Row for the next 30 years.  Mumia is no longer on death row – but remains in prison under a sentence of life without parole.  He has remained a steadfast voice for social justice and revolution from within the prison walls.

Join us for a screening of ‘Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal’ on December 10th.

The film is “an inspiring portrait of a man that many consider America’s most famous political prisoner – a man whose very existence tests our beliefs about justice and freedom. Through prison interviews, archival footage, dramatic readings, as well as a potent chorus of historic voices, this riveting film explores Mumia’s life before, during and after Death Row.”
