Jamal, Mumia Abu-: The Fraith of our Fathers
The best-selling author of Live From Death Row and symbolic figure of freedom within the black community turns his eye to the matter of faith throughout five hundred years of oppression. Wrongfully convicted of shooting a police officer in 1982, Mumia Abu-Jamal has been writing from Death Row on the politics of being black in America for the past twenty years. Despite huge evidence pointing to his innocence, as well as the world-wide support from Nelson Mandela, The European Parliament, Alice Walker, Paul Newman, Maya Angelou, Danny Glover, Rage Against The Machine, Amnesty International and many others, his appeal continues unanswered. Yet, despite the injustices of his own life, Abu-Jamal has shown his willingness to survive, to celebrate love and life and to fight for justice - a personal experience that has brought him to the question of the spiritual life of the African Diaspora. From the founding legends of Abyssinia's royal house to the hidden "hush harbours" of black captives in the America's southland, Mumia Abu-Jamal presents a moving portrayal of black faith over the span of five hundred years.
In this book, his first work of history, the acclaimed essayist pens a probing panorama of the spiritual life of African people, who, dispensed from their motherland, molded a love of freedom into religious practice and resistance to racist tyranny.
