Co-presented by Leeway Foundation and Temple University Department of Theater, Film and Media

With Debbie Africa, Mike Africa, Mike Africa Jr., Louis Massiah, Maori Karmael Holmes, and Ephraim Asili; moderated by Krystal Strong and Deborah Thomas

This panel assembles friends and members of the Move! Organization who poetically reinscribe a sense of care, deep recognition, and aliveness against the dominant spectacle of Black death and suffering associated with the bombing, imprisonment, and unreturned bodily remains of the Africa family. Their works (The Bombing of Osage Ave, By Your Side, The Inheritance, 40 Years a Prisoner, Wilson No Goode, and Fly Baby!) address the history of state violence and the intimate tenors of family life contained but on a move.
