On April 1st, Democracy Now! kicked off the beginning of the new commentaries written, but not spoken, by journalist and Pennsylvania Death Row inmate Mumia Abu Jamal called "All Things Censored." In November 1996, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections banned all journalists from audio recording, videotaping, or photographing any inmate in a state facility. Democracy Now! aired the last permitted recordings of Mumia Abu Jamal in March.

Mumia Anu Jamal was convicted of the 1981 killing of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. He has been on death row for 16 years. He maintains his innocence, and human rights activists around the world have rallied around his case to call for a new trial.

"All Things Censored" is produced by Prison Radio together with Democracy Now! and written by Mumia Abu Jamal. Today’s piece is read by actor Peter Coyote
