Abu-Jamal, a gifted and controversial Philadelphia journalist, was sentenced to death in 1982 for the murder of a police officer, a crime, as Alice Walker writes in her foreword, "millions of people around the world" believe he did not commit. Abu-Jamal has not suffered the injustice of his nearly 20-year incarceration on death row in silence.

IN this book 'All Things Censored' it takes a look at the prison system from the inside to the outside.

Abu-Jamal has also suffered governmental retribution for his insistence on being heard, but he continues to write eloquent and indelible essays about the failings of the courts, so-called correctional facilities, and the media. This collection brings together 75 of those pieces, accompanied by a CD of his banned radio recordings.

More than 75 essays—many freshly composed by Mumia with the cartridge of a ball-point pen, the only implement he is allowed in his death-row cell—embody the calm and powerful words of humanity spoken by a man on Death Row. Abu-Jamal writes on many different topics, including the ironies that abound within the U.S. prison system and the consequences of those ironies, and his own case. Mumia's composure, humor, and connection to the living world around him represents an irrefutable victory over the "corrections" system that has for two decades sought to isolate and silence him.The title, All Things Censored, refers to Mumia's hiring as an on-air columnist by National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," and subsequent banning from that venue under pressure from law and order groups.

Not much is said or thought about when it comes to U.S. incarceration. It's a out of sight out of mind. When reading about someone going to prison we assume they are guilty because that is what the newspapers and the 6 0 clock news tells us. This comes from the various district attorneys all across the nation. IN this book 'All Things Censored' it takes a look at the prison system from the inside to the outside. From the judges who do not hide their contempt to the defense lawyers who do not defend their clients especially if the arrest is questionable to begin with. Witnesses who are rewarded with shorter sentences if they commit purgury to get a conviction. Mumia is a journalist and has fought for his right of speech from behind prison walls. Most cases today are pleaded out because of the intimidation by defense attorneys. It's a look into a system that rarely gets talked about from blatant abuses to constant lockdowns. It may cause you to think twice about what was assumed to be true. It's worth a read.

There is a lot of media hype surrounding Mumia Abu-Jamal, a prisoner on Pennsylvania's death row. This book by author Jamal, a collection of his essays, cuts through that media hype and conveys Jamal's words in his own voice and writing style. I found this book to be extremely compelling and thought-provoking reading, and would highly recommend "All Things Censored" to anybody without hesitation. The bonus of having a CD of Jamal's banned voice-recordings of his essays included in this book is a real treat, and makes "All Things Censored" even more of a bargain to buy. I particularly enjoyed listening to the CD of Jamal's essays as I sat reading his words in his book. You will too.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is one of the country's most governmentally-opposed, but most insightful journalists and historians. His writing is masterful. His voice is compelling, as heard on the accompanying CD of audio recordings of his essays. His dedication to his writing, and presenting honest history of the oppressed and of American racism and injustice offers us amazing texts that otherwise are not being taken on by publishers in the amounts they ought to be. Mumia accomplishes more behind bars than most writers on the outside do. I've bought many copies of this book to give as gifts: to transform readers understandings and perspectives. This volume is that profound.

The speakers I find really compelling to listen to are ones who have some obvious flaw in their speaking style. Noam Chomsky, Terrence McKenna, and Howard Zinn are speakers who are able to connect with audiences in spite of their lack of professional rhetorical polish. That lack of polish can come across as a kind of vulnerability that draws support from the listener where a more cultivated speaking style might leave one cold.
Mumia Abu-Jamal's voice is so perfect, so smooth and controlled that it strikes a distrustful chord in me. This CD consists of a collection of 3-minute commentaries that Mumia recorded for NPR's All Things Considered but which were never aired. William Kunstler, who reads one of Mumia's essays on the CD, opines that NPR failed to air Mumia's words becuase they (NPR) lacked the courage to stand up to the law enforcement community. I don't know what level of truth Kunstler's suspicion may enjoy, but if I were an NPR exec, I might have reservations about airing the segments to an audience used to commentaries by people like Andrei Codrescu and E.B. White, whose voices just exude texture and character. By comparrison, Mumia's delivery comes across like someone doing id spots for an FM rock station. The echo chamber reverb on his voice on this CD exacerbates the problem.
The essay that William Kunstler reads on this CD is quite moving, and while its content is very much in the same vein as the majority of Mumia's audio-essays, Kunstler's delivery seems so much more genuine and compelling. Mumia Abu-Jamal is passionate, articulate, and well informed. If he seems humorless, it should be remembered that he is on death row. Even so, I don't see myself giving this disc many additional listens.

Mumia Abu-Jamal has not only a good oratory style, but also writes vividly and convincingly. Mumia has a rare perspective, as his background as a reporter and his long and unjust incarceration give him an understanding of the political economy of the media, which serves to silence dissent, and the prejudice of the trial and punishment system. This book is essential for anyone who has an interest in US politics, justice, the issue of the death penalty and Mumia's case in particular. It is also an excellent insight into modern American society - the aspect that we are discouraged from seeing by politicians and the media. Any person who has a grasp of America's recent history knows all about police brutality, the oppression of minorities and the choking conformity of censorship, but rarely has a writer conveyed all of this so clearly. If this book is inflammatory, it is only because that is the rightful response to an injustice of the magnitude Mumia has been subjected to. His case encapsulates the blatant and ruthless prejudice of the police and the courts, and their highly pervasive and authoritarian grip on mainstream media discourse. His case echoes that of Nigeria's Ken Saro-Wiwa, and it would be to America's shame if he were to pay the same price for his dissent. Don't believe the corporate-controlled mass media - reject censorship. Find out the facts of Mumia's case and then decide.
