Book Condition   Very Good

Publisher   Philadelphia Philadelphia Enquirer 1978

Seller ID   1557

[Anarchist, Black Liberation, MOVE] Wire Photo, Delbert Africa Arrested. Philadelphia: Philadelphia Enquirer, August 10, 1978. Wire photo, 19.7 by 24.3 cm. Very good with wax pencil crop marks on the image; pen and pencil notes and a spot of skinning from a removed label on verso. A truly striking image of Delbert Africa, a leader of the communal MOVE activist group. After the 1978 shootout, in which a police officer was killed, nine MOVE members were sentenced to 100 years in prison, including Delbert Africa. The caption reads: “PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 10 -- DELBERT AFRICA ARRESTED -- Philadelphia Police Stakeout Division officers approach radical group ‘MOVE’ leader, Delbert Africa, Tuesday morning after he surrendered following shootout on Philadelphia’s west side. One police officer was killed in the confrontation in which the city was attempting to serve court [eviction] warrant.” MOVE remains active today. See detail on the cover of this list. $85.00
