If you lived in Philadelphia in 1985, you probably remember where you were at 5:27 p.m. on May 13, when police dropped a bomb on the West Philadelphia home of black activists group MOVE. The bomb caused a fire that the fire department initially allowed to burn. The fire quickly got out of hand — in the end killing 11 MOVE members, including five children. It completely devastated the 6200 block of Osage Avenue, destroying 61 homes and damaging many others.
After a "blue ribbon" investigation into the event and a grand jury convening, no officials were ever held criminally responsible for the 11 deaths. Ramona Africa was the only adult survivor to make it out of the home alive. Ramona and her sister Pam spoke to host James Peterson about the early days of MOVE and how they became involved with the group in the 1970s.
