About this book
In Death Blossoms: Reflections From a Prisoner of Conscience Mumia Abu-Jamal, America's best known political prisoner, offers poetic observations and reflections on life on this planet and on death row. In this collection of short essays and personal vignettes, which take on everything from spirituality and religion to capitalism and the prison-industrial complex, Mumia examines the deeper dimensions of existence.

Mumia's ability to celebrate life and advocate for revolutionary change while being held, at the state's convenience, at death's door, imbues his thoughts and words with power and passion. "Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to," he writes in "Politics." In "God-Talk on Phase II" he writes, "On death's brink, men begin to see things they've perhaps never seen before. Like those around them, and especially those who share their fate?men whose death warrants have been signed, men with a date to die-live each day with a clarity and a vibrancy they might have lacked in less pressured times."
