The campaign for a new trial for Philadelphia activist Mumia Abu-Jamal has been a staple of activism for two decades. There are three screenings at Durham's Carolina Theatre Monday and Tuesday. One of the film's producers, and one of Mumia's attorneys, will be on hand for a post-screening panel Tuesday, along with Keith Cook, Mumia's brother, and Jamal Hart, Mumia's son.
