We Want Freedom

Award-winning journalist and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal provides a compelling insider's account of one of America's most renown radical organizations, the Black Panther Party. Abu-Jamal helped found the Panther's Philadelphia branch and wrote for the Party's national newspaper. Through the Party, Abu-Jamal began his life-long work of building a movement to expose the violence of the state and end entrenched poverty, endemic racism, and police brutality. In We Want Freedom, Abu-Jamal's uniquely powerful, even poetic, voice makes his Black Panther days come alive. With an unsparing critical gaze, he situates the organization within its historical context, a context that included both great revolutionary fervor and great repression.
