Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners v. the USA

This book is about Mumia Abu-Jamal
In "Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners v. the USA," Mumia Abu-Jamal, an award-winning journalist and death-row inmate, unveils the compelling narratives of inmates who transform into advocates within the walls of America's prisons. Published on March 1, 2009, and introduced by Angela Y. Davis, this book sheds light on those who learn the intricacies of legal defense out of sheer necessity, often challenging and overcoming injustices in the pursuit of freedom. Abu-Jamal's poignant descriptions bring to life the harsh realities and resilience found behind bars, where law is practiced not in universities, but amidst the confines of incarceration. Ideal for college students studying criminal and racial justice, this book not only provides expert commentary on the justice system but also serves as a powerful testament to the strength of human spirit and the pursuit of justice against all odds. Engage with the stories that challenge the boundaries of the legal landscape and inspire a deeper commitment to reform.
