When Black Power Meets Animal Rights

Saturday, September 12, 2020
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Event Type:
Animal Liberation Conference
Location Details:

Did you know that in Pennsylvania in the 1970s, a collective called MOVE formed whose mission was to organize for black power and animal rights? Black history is animal rights history.

Join us on September 12th as we hear from Mike Africa Jr., member of The MOVE Organization who was born in prison to parents who were political prisoners. Mike will share his story and how he maintains a “never give up” attitude.

Mike was born in prison after his parents were arrested and sentenced to 100 years in prison. A week later, he was separated from them and placed into an abusive orphanage. Years later, his family was bombed by Philadelphia police and eleven of his family members were killed. Mike, at the age of 13, dedicated his life to bringing his parents home from prison and finally, when he was 40, they were paroled and reunited.
