On May 13, 2015, WURD observed the 30-year commemoration of the tragic city government-sanctioned bombing of the Osage Ave. M.O.V.E. residence in 1985. Click for a recap, plus a podcast of reflections from WURD’s Barbara Grant, M.O.V.E. member Ramona Africa, and radio veteran/activist Cody Anderson.

In early October 2014, Brother Mumia Abu-Jamal was the commencement speaker at Goddard College, his alma mater (recorded speech was played). In response to this — and in an attempt to silence him — Pennsylvania legislators quickly drafted and passed a bill called the “Revictimization Relief Act.”

Sister Ramona Africa speaks with “Wake Up With WURD” host Phil Allen about how members of the M.O.V.E. 9 — both free and incarcerated — maintain their resolve for justice. Ramona also discusses what freedom really means to her family.
