Eddie Africa, a member of the MOVE 9, was released from a Pennsylvania prison Friday, after spending 40 years behind bars. Eddie Africa was convicted, along with eight others, in the 1978 killing of police officer James Ramp. The nine were arrested following a Philadelphia police raid on the house of MOVE, a radical, anti-police-brutality and largely African-American organization. His release follows that of Janine Phillips Africa and Janet Holloway Africa last month. Husband and wife Mike Africa Sr. and Debbie Africa were both released last year. Two members of the group remain behind bars.
