In Prison My Whole Life is about a man: a father, a son, an inspiration and a pariah - who currently faces his twenty-fifth year on Death Row. His name is Mumia Abu-Jamal, a Black Panther and radical journalist who was arrested for the murder of a police officer in Philadelphia in 1981. He claimed he was innocent but was sentenced to death and has been awaiting execution ever since.
