MOVE 9 Member Delbert Orr Africa Released from Prison

HeadlineJan 21, 2020

MOVE 9 member Delbert Orr Africa, known as Del Africa, was released from a Pennsylvania prison Saturday, after 42 years behind bars. Del Africa was arrested with eight others following a 1978 police raid on the house of MOVE, a radical, anti-police-brutality and largely African-American organization. The members were convicted in the killing of Philadelphia police officer James Ramp. One member of the MOVE 9, Chuck Africa, still remains in prison. Six others others have been released, and two members died behind bars.
