African Americans and the United States judicial system. Program is the first in a two-part series discussing the harsh sentencing of African Americans in the Massachusetts court system using the Paplo case, the Hakim Jamal case, and the Willie Saunders/Brighton rape case as studies in injustice. Host Barbara Barrow-Murray speaks with individuals involved with the cases, including Frank Neisser (Secretary to the Citywide Coalition for Justice and Equality), Mary Harris (mother of Edward Soares, one of the defendants in the Paplo case and member of Family and Friends of Prisoners and the Citywide Coalition for Justice and Equality ), Larry Gaines (Chairman of the Citywide Coalition for Justice and Equality), Professor Alan Dershowitz (with Harvard Law School), Saundra Carney (Coordinator for Brown, Johnson, Clinkscales Support Committee), and Undrey Sanders (brother of Willie Sanders, who was arrested for the rapes in Brighton, and representative for the Willie Sanders Defense Committee). Program includes interview footage with Dinizula Kamau (Efrid Brown, Jr.) and Abdullah Khalil Sabree (both convicted in the Hakim Jamal case) from Say Brother's visit to the Walpole correctional facility and viewer calls related to the cases. Produced by Barbara Barrow-Murray. Directed by Brian Clarke. (less)

Dinizulu Kamau and Abdullah Khalil Sabree comment on the Hakim Jamal murder case. Part two of Say Brother's discussion of the harsh sentencing of African Americans in the Massachusetts court system.

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). Produced by Barbara Barrow-Murray. Directed by Brian Clarke. (less)

Dinizulu Kamau discusses violence against inmates in the Departmental Segregation Unit (DSU), 10 Block. Program offers an in-depth look at the policies, procedures, and inmates of the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Walpole, one of the most controversial maximum-security correctional facilities in the United States. Throughout the four days spent interviewing Walpole's inmates and staff, Say Brother documented the discriminatory application of the internal classification system (resulting in African Americans serving longer sentences and being placed in stricter confines), the virtual absence of minority staff, and the punitive rather than rehabilitative programs at the prison, particularly those of the Departmental Segregation Unit (DSU), 10 Block. (Say Brother was afforded the unusual privilege of being able to enter and obtain footage of 10 Block.) Those interviewed include Fred A. Butterworth (Superintendent of Walpole), Paul DiPaolo (a Walpole Social Worker), Carol Gabel (Director of Prisoner Programs), and Thomas DaSilva (Supervisor of DSU/10 Block). (See Program 923 for additional information on inmates Dinizulu Kamau and Adbullah Khalil Sabree.) Produced by Barbara Barrow-Murray. Directed by Brian Clarke. (less)
