This show featured Part 2 of an ongoing series with Jalil A. Muntaqim. All of the audio from the series was recorded by the Prison Radio Show in a two hour long interview with Jalil. This part features Jalil talking about political prisoners, the Jericho Movement, and how to bring about prison abolition. For more information on Jalil, you can visit freejalil.com
