Hope Breathing Life : Postcards for Liberation
by Zolo Agona Azania
I am soooo overwhelmingly happy to be able to announce the recent publication of this book of postcards, featuring the artwork of New Afrikan political prisoner Zolo Agona Azania. This was a project that could not have comen about without the wonderful work by the people in the No Death Penalty for Zolo Committee in Chicago. Zolo Agona Azania is not only a remarkable artist, but also one of the numerous African-Americans who await execution as a result of a racist criminal justice system. Moreover he is a politically conscious activist, who at the time of his arrest and capture in 1981, was actively involved in the movement for the self-determination of African-American people. The fact that he defined himself as a New Afrikan and was committed to the liberation and independence of Black people within the borders of the U.S., directly influenced the way the police, the prosecution, and the Indiana courts denied him a fair trial and fanned the flames of prejudice to obtain the death penalty. Throughout his ordeal, Zolo has maintained a strong spirit of hope and a commitment to justice for all. From Zolo’s tribute to the struggle of Emmett Tilll’s family to his depiction of the story of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the paintings collected in this book are a testament of this spirit. Please check out this book, order copies for yourelf, for the progressive bookstore of distro in your town, for your friends and comrades. Proceeds from the sale of this book are being used to support Zolo’s fight for his life.
