Mumia Abu-Jamal is the most recognized death row inmate in the world today.
In 1982, he was tried and convicted for the murder of a police officer.
Today his case is one of the most contested legal cases. A former Black
Panther and now renowned author, his books and writings have led many to
hail him "the voice of the voiceless."
 
Justice on Trial demonstrates that the major violations in the Abu-Jamal
case -- judicial bias, prosecutorial misconduct, racial discrimination in
jury selection, police corruption and tampering with evidence to obtain a
conviction-- are commonly practiced within the criminal justice system and
account for the disproportionate incarceration of African Americans and
Latinos in the United States. His case is a microcosm of greater problems in
the criminal justice system in the U.S. today. The Abu-Jamal case is one of
the most important civil rights cases of our time.
