SAJA (@sajaHQ) and CPJ (@PressFreedom) present a conversation about the state of press freedom in Pakistan. Join Umar Cheema, who won this year's International Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists, and Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia director as they talk about what's happening in Pakistan today. More on Cheema below.
Umar Cheema, a reporter with Islamabad's The News, was abducted in September 2010 by unknown assailants who stripped, beat, and photographed him in humiliating positions. Cheema's unwillingness to stay silent about his abduction and the abuses he suffered has drawn wide attention to the nationwide issue of anti-press violence in Pakistan.
Almost immediately after he was released, Cheema went on television to tell the world of the abuses and humiliation he endured at the hands of "men in police commando uniforms." He said his captors asked why he continued with his critical reporting--was he trying to discredit the government and bring back former President Musharraf?
In the months since his kidnapping, Cheema has been harassed and threatened for his coverage of politics, national security, and corruption. In keeping with Pakistan's record of near-perfect impunity in the cases of hundreds of journalists threatened, abducted, and killed, Cheema's case remains unprosecuted and unsolved. But his courage has rallied his colleagues across the nation. An editorial in the English-language daily Dawn said, "No half-hearted police measures or words of consolation from the highest offices in the land will suffice in the aftermath of the brutal treatment meted out to journalist Umar Cheema of The News. This paper's stand is clear: the government and its intelligence agencies will be considered guilty until they can prove their innocence."

THIS IS PART TWO OF MY DISCUSSION WITH DB!!!
Part One was about his childhood, now we're getting into Black Studies in this second episode.
I met Dabney at a Meet & Greet in September 2014 at a coffee house. Plus we had previously exchanged some comments back and forth in a facebook group we're both a part of.
He brought all types of books to the meet & greet to share with us. Dabney is passionate about Black Studies!!! And I could tell he sincerely cared about the people in our group, most of which are a lot younger than he and I.
Well, as time went on, I noticed that Dabney was very opinionated about certain subjects. In fact some of his comments on some of my posts and the posts in the group, would challenge the belief systems of others. Look, Dabney is that Dude that will post a comment that makes you say in your head "This Mutha Fucka". Lol!!! Real talk.
As I continued to pay attention to the content of his posts, I realized that there was an interesting story/history that cultivated his fervor for his viewpoint. And you know me. I decided to find out why. So I decided to interview Dabney to find out how he became an orphan at 3 years old and grew into the Freedom Fighter/Teacher that he is today.
