Program Description
Part two of Say Brother's discussion of the harsh sentencing of African Americans in the Massachusetts court system. Program focuses on the history of the De Mau Mau (a Black Panthers-type group organized by African American veterans returning from the Vietnam War) and the five Boston-based De Mau Mau members convicted in the murder of Hakim Jamal. In documentary format, Barbara Barrow-Murray speaks with Philip Key (Boston's De Mau Mau leader), Walpole inmates Dinizulu Kamau and Abdullah Khalil Sabree (convicted of Jamal's murder) and Mrs. Gaskin ("Mama G.," mother of the appointed De Mau Mau leader after Key went into hiding) about the De Mau Mau, the events of the day Jamal was murdered, and the legal battle that followed. Program includes brief commentary by Larry Gaines (Chairman of the Citywide Coalition for Justice and Equality) and Saundra Carney (Coordinator for Brown, Clinkscales and Johnson Support Committee).
