HeadlineMay 28, 2019

And two members of the MOVE 9 were released from prison on parole Saturday. Janine Phillips Africa and Janet Holloway Africa spent 40 years behind bars after being convicted of third-degree murder in police officer James Ramp’s 1978 death. They were arrested with seven others following a Philadelphia police raid on the house of MOVE, a radical, anti-police-brutality and largely African-American organization. Husband and wife Mike Africa Sr. and Debbie Africa were both released last year.
