This week, we hear reflections from members of the MOVE Organization. Speaking at the 2019 Fight Toxic Prisons convergence, they give their thoughts on the past and current struggles of MOVE family members behind bars. Mike Africa, Jr., who was born in prison, speaks about the MOVE Organization, and having his parents on the inside during most of his life. His mother, Debbie Africa, tells the story about birthing Mike Jr. in prison and successfully keeping him for several days in her prison cell, unknown to prison authorities. Mike Africa, Sr. also shares information about the MOVE Organization, and tells the story of Chuck Africa, who is still imprisoned.
We’ve interviewed other members of the MOVE Organization before. You can hear our 2017 interview with Ramona Africa here.
