Mumia Abu-Jamal is an African-American journalist, political activist, and militant leader from Philadelphia. An early Black Panther, Mumia was charged with the 1981 murder of Philadelphia Police officer Daniel Faulkner. Sentenced to death, Abu-Jamal's sentence was overturned in December, 2001. The ruling has been repeatedly appealed and Mumia is still serving life in prison because he will not share what information he does know about Faulkner's death, as he has admitted that while he is not responsible he did witness the incident. Due to his political involvement and association as a Black radical, he was framed for the murder and remains one of the U.S.'s most famous political prisoners.
