Ramona Africa Presents A Screening of Move: Confrontation in Philadelphia

Former U.S. political prisoner, RAMONA AFRICA, is the Minister of Communication for the MOVE Organization and a Philadelphia-based organizer with the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal. She is also the only living survivor of the 1985 MOVE bombing, when the FBI and Philadelphia police dropped two C-4 bombs on her organization’s Philadelphia home, killing 11 people. Ramona will discuss the history of MOVE and the situations of political prisoners in the US today.

As part of the event, we will also screen the film MOVE: Confrontation in Philadelphia.

Admission fees will go to help cover Ramona Africa’s travel costs and SPACE’s facility usage. These are suggested amounts. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
