This week on Black Agenda Radio we will air a 25 minute segment on the first national conference of Students Against Mass Incarceration recently held at Howard University. Political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal addressed the conference from a Pennsylvania Prison. He was introduced by Baruch College Professor Johanna Fernandez (Educators for Mumia) and Pam Africa (head of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal).
Please visit us at blackagendareport.com (click on Black Agenda Radio) to hear the entire program including this segment on Wednesday, May 8th. In addition, you will hear an interview with Ralph Poynter, husband of Lynne Stewart, about the possibility of an end to her incarceration. Stewart who is suffering stage four breast cancer was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for defending her client, the "blind sheik" convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Stewart's family was recently visited by federal probation officers to determine if Lynne has an adequate place to stay and be cared for in New York if she is allowed compassionate release.
