During the 70’s and 80’s there was an organization that forged communal-ism and voiced the struggle for civil-rights. The MOVE organization led by John Africa, a philosophical man able to lead a group of Philadelphians with hopes of achieving humanistic utopia of connecting as one with nature and rid the land of racism and police brutality. Also during this time talk-radio personality, Mumia Abu-Jamal, a MOVE supporter and Black Panther, covered many MOVE trials throughout his career and asked John Africa to represent him during his trial for allegedly killing a Philadelphia officer during a traffic stop involving Mumia’s brother.
