    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Ramona Africa, minister of communication for the MOVE organization, by activist and scholar Dr. Anthony Monteiro and by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio.

    Today is the 63rd birthday of Mumia Abu-Jamal, perhaps the most well known of the political prisoners currently being held in the United States. Mumia is also in court today, as his supporters will take to the streets in Philadelphia. His lifetime of struggle, beginning with his membership in the Black Panther Party, has been an inspiration for generations of activists, and his case has been taken up by those seeking social justice across the world. But Mumia is far from the only political prisoner being held in US prisons today. We'll discuss this for the full hour today.
