Running Down The Walls
We host prisoner letter-writing events on the fourth Monday of every month at 6:30 pm currently held online using Jitsi due to COVID.
Rest in Power, Del! Reporting back from the August 8, 2020 tribute to Delbert Africa, we wanted to share some images and video from the event as well as what Del meant to members of Philly ABC. We corresponded and visited with Del and all remaining Move 9 prisoners (#RIP Merle Africa - 1998) from 2013 to after their release from prison. They maintained the great physical shape that the group was known for, to the best of their ability, inside prison for 4 decades. [Read More]
