"And The Walls Came Tumbling Down"
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Angela Davis, Soffiyah Elijah, and Marc Lamont Hill
Recalling in now its 41st year the Attica prison massacre of courageous prisoners who rose up against dehumanizing conditions, thousands came together to follow their lead and resist the burgeoning system of caging human beings. Insisting that solitary confinement cease, that Attica be closed, and that the pipeline from community to prison be turned off, and rallying against what has now become referred to as the "New Jim Crow" the crowd reached a crescendo after Mumia Abu-Jamal,political prisoner, author, journalist and social critic, reached by phone spoke to them delivering a message that left everyone present with a sense of hope, good feeling and determination, to tear down the walls & shutter the prison-industrial system.
This extraordinary event was sponsored by the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; The Riverside Church Mission and Social Justice; the Riverside Church Prison Ministry; the Correctional Association of New York; the New York State Justice Network and the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow.
