Welcome to On the Block, a radio show that looks critically at our criminal justice system.
On today’s show, we will listen to special east coast edition of Block Report Radio in which JR Valrey interviews M-1 of the Hip Hop group Dead Prez on the significance of the movement to free Mumia Abu Jamal.
Then, we will hear from Luqman Abdullah on his report at a special hearing on solitary confinement in the Pennsylvania Prison System that was convened by state representative Ron Waters.
All of that coming up On the Block on WPEB 88.1 FM, Philadelphia.
The PA Prison Reports are compiled by Andy and Bret of the Human Rights Coalition based on the accounts of prisoner correspondents and the investigations of HRC members. From the compiled data, the reports are re-written by Andy into the narratives you hear on “On The Block Radio.” Many thanks.
