When he heard Mumi Abu-Jamal's voice on the line, noted scholar 
Cornel West could barely contain his 
<http://t.ymlp130.com/yyafameeaiauswsarauwbq/click.php>"My dear 
brother, my dear brother," he exclaimed, his baritone voice full of admiration.

Dr. West was the keynote speaker at an event celebrating the release 
of Mumia's new book, Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners 
v.the U.S.A. The event was recorded by C-SPAN for broadcast.

Mumia was able to call in from SCI Greene, the supermax prison in 
rural Pennsylvania where he lives in lockdown 22 hours per day. He is 
limited to three short phone calls per week.

Over the next 15 minutes an illuminating, moving and at times 
humorous dialogue took place between the two men. Mumia read from the 
preface of his book and answered questions about his life, his ideas, 
and his work.

Dr. West, one of America's most provocative public intellectuals, is 
a Princeton professor, philosopher, activist and the author of 19 
books. His writing, speaking, and teaching weave together the 
traditions of the black Baptist Church, progressive politics, and jazz.

At one point in their animated conversation, Dr. West declared, 
<http://t.ymlp130.com/yyafameeaiauswsarauwbq/click.php>"you are a 
FREE black man on death row." Mumia responded, "now don't tell nobody."
