And in Pennsylvania, MOVE member Debbie Africa has been granted parole and was released from prison after a decades-long campaign to win her freedom. Debbie Africa was imprisoned for nearly 40 years, after being arrested during a massive police raid on the Philadelphia MOVE house in 1978, during which one police officer was killed. At the time of her arrest, she was 22 years old and was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with her son, Mike Jr. After her release Saturday, Debbie Africa reunited with her son, Mike, for the first time outside prison walls in their entire lives.
