Mumia Commentary

August 03, 1999

At the beginning of every month Democracy Now! airs "All Things Censored," commentaries written by journalist and death row resident Mumia Abu-Jamal, and produced by Noelle Hanrahan. Recordings of Mumia’s voice have been banned by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and so each month we bring to you notable people recording his new essays.

Ramona Africa is the Minister of Communication for the MOVE organization. She is the sole adult survivor of the bombing of the MOVE house on May 13th, 1985 that killed 11 people, including 5 children. She served eight years on charges of resisting arrest stemming from that state sponsored massacre. Today she leads the fight for the freedom of the MOVE 9 incarcerated in Pennsylvania prisons.
