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!
