Reclaim Osage - Help Me Reclaim 6221 Osage Ave

My name is Mike Africa, Jr.
I'm raising funds to reclaim the home that was taken from me and my family. This fundraiser is also very important for its historic significance in Black American history. My goal is to use the funds to pay off the mortgage on the house. We put a down payment on it but we still owe $336k.

It’s been 38 years since my family was violently removed from our home at 6221 Osage Ave. by force of a bomb made of C4. After the bombing, Philly officials turned the house into a police-occupied space which remained for the next 30+ years. 

Louise James was the sister of MOVE founder John Africa and the owner of the house. She was a columnist for the Philadelphia Tribune, the oldest black newspaper in the country. She wrote for papers and publications around the country, tackling issues, such as racism, police violence, and governmental corruption. Her dying wish was to have her house returned to her, but the city refused. 

Please donate to help Reclaim Osage. It’s 38 years past time.
Thank You!

Mike Africa, Jr.
