FEATURING STEPHEN VITTORIA – A new book authored by Stephen Vittoria and political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, explores the history of the United States and takes on the myth that the US is a beacon for freedom and democracy. Murder Incorporated: Empire, Genocide, and Manifest Destiny is actually a series of three books and the first book, Dreaming of Empire has just been published.
The book is a powerful antidote to the misguided nostalgia of Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” showcasing in visceral terms how racism, slavery, genocide, and terrorism have long been the basis of the American project.
Stephen Vittoria, award winning documentary filmmaker, whose films include Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary. He is the co-author with Mumia Abu Jamal of the first of a series of three books, Murder Incorporated: Dreaming of Empire
