Teach-In About Mumia Abu-Jamal Saturday, Dec 9, 2006
10AM-2PM at Temekula Gallery behind the Pagesincolor.com store at 888 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, CA.

Mumia Abu-Jamal has been on Death Row in Pennsylvania since 1982, wrongfully convicted of killing police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Faulkner died and Mumia was wounded in the early morning hours of Dec 9, 1981. Pagesincolor.com is sponsoring a benefit and Teach-in for Mumia Abu-Jamal. The presentation includes:

* A videotaped confession of a hit man, Arnold Beverly, who claims that he, not Mumia, was the one who shot Officer Faulkner.

* Video of one of Mumia's former attorneys Elliot Grossman talking about how Mumia's original trial attorney could have won the case by simply asking a few important questions.

* The Video "Framing an Execution: The Media & Mumia Abu-Jamal", exposes the bias behind ABC's 20/20 episode called "Hollywood's Unlikely Hero", a hit piece about Mumia Abu-Jamal.

All donations will be given to Mumia Abu-Jamal's legal defense.

The video portions of the presentation are wheelchair accessible, via a 13" TV located downstairs in the Pagesincolor.com store. The bathroom is not wheelchair accessible.
