Description: This week on the Global Research News Hour, we are continuing our conversation on racial justice in America by shining the majority of our spotlight on the long time political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal.
In our first half hour, Suzanne Ross of the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu Jamal brings us a few updates on his health following his surgery, and the plight of his legal situation.
In our second half hour, we are joined by professor and activist Johanna Fernandez to help us explore further Mumia’s case through the lens of racialized policing.
Our Final guest, Mike Afrika Jr talks about the long standing issues facing his family in the wake of the arrests of his parents in ‘78, the bombing in ‘85 and the approach taken to fight the racial oppression facing his group, Mumia and others in 2021.
