Mumia Abu-Jamal: A Case for Reasonable Doubt?

America's most "celebrated" death row inmate, Mumia Abu-Jamal, speaks for the first time behind prison walls. Mumia was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1981 murder of a 25 year-old white Philadelphia policeman. His conviction has been protested by activists and celebrities who call him a political prisoner because of the perceived irregularities in both the evidence and the conduct of his trial. Produced and directed by John Edginton. 1997. 74 min.
