For the first time in over a year, Mumia Abu-Jamal will appear in a Philadelphia courtroom today. Abu-Jamal is the African American journalist and commentator who’s been on death row since 1982, when he was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer. For the past few years, attorneys have been trying to get Abu-Jamal a new trial because of judicial bias. Today’s hearing will determine whether the court will allow new evidence of police misconduct in Abu-Jamal’s case.
