Hip Hop War Report Correspondent Minister of Information JR of POCC: Block Report Radio interviewed Black Panther political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal about the 25th year of his unjust incarceration, as well as, the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party.

He talks about how he believes conditions in the poorest parts of Black Amerikkka have gotten progressively worst than they were in the 60’s. Mumia also goes into the mainstream media’s portrayal of the Party, and how it’s coverage was not surprising, and how leftwing authors including Charles Jones’ “The Black Panther Party Reconsidered?, and his own book “We Want Freedom? have done a lot to “open up perspectives?.
Mumia gives his reflections on the
late great cofounder of the Black Panther Party, Minister of Defense Huey P.
Newton, as well as his opinion on the relevance of the Black Panthers 10 Point
Platform today, in the Black community. Mumia goes on to discuss how it is “as

This particular segment of POCC: Block Report Radio was put on the Hip Hop War Report podcast, because we believe that it is important for youngsters to take interest and action, in issues that are facing their communities, realizing that in most cases it is the young people who create change in any given society. We hope that this inspires young and older people alike to get educated and involved in freeing Black political prisoners in this country. It is our social responsibility, especially because Mumia Abu Jamal, and others fought for our rights, when a majority of us, weren’t even fighting for our own rights. Free All Political Prisoners!

R., the Minister of Information, is constantly in the streets bringing you full coverage of our soldiers in the struggle.
