The Laney College Black Student Union in association with the Campaign To End The Death Penalty will be hosting an event commemorating Malcolm X, his Legacy and Life work. We will be celebrating the 60th birthday of Mumia Abu-Jamal. And standing in solidarity with Kevin Cooper a innocent man on death row in San Quentin state penitently since 1985.
Our goal is to bring attention to the in humane treatment of prisoners and the true function of the prison industrial complex ( slavery by another name). We will show a short film on Mumia Abu- Jamal followed by a statement from Kevin Cooper ( note that there will be a question and answer segment with Kevin Cooper) and a call to action to support hunger strikers protesting in prisons across California.
