The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Ramona Africa. With decades invested in the effort to counter-racism, Ramona Africa is a veteran member of the MOVE organization. This Philadelphia, Pennsylvania organization worked diligently to combat police terrorism, corruption, pollution and the general war on black people. In 1985, local government officials decided to detonate an explosive devise that burned down the MOVE house and killed eleven people including children. The inferno ultimately destroyed the entire neighborhood of over 60 black-owned houses. Some of the MOVE members remain incarcerated to this day. We’ll get Ramona Africa’s reflections on her time in the organization, fellow Pennsylvania freedom fighter Mumia Abu-Jamal, and reported police shootings in Dallas and Baton Rouge. The MOVE organization is preparing for a conference in the spring of 2017. Please, support their fundraising effort here.
