Outline for letters and how you can help.


Below are an outline and suggestions on writing letters to the Pennsylvania Parole Board on behalf of Delbert Africa. Please mail your letters to his attorneys and NOT directly to the parole board. Delbert’s legal team will compile the letters and submit them on his behalf. Letters can be typed or handwritten, so long as they are legible. Please send the letters so they are postmarked by August 10, 2019.


GREETING: Dear Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole (OR) To whom it may concern:

Your background/personal info:
Briefly describe yourself: who you are, your position in work or your role in the community, and any points which could establish your ability to advise the board about Delbert. If you are not personally acquainted with him, tell the judge why you are interested in his case.

Your relationship with Delbert (if applicable):
If you know Delbert personally, describe your relationship. How long have you known him? Do you write, call or visit with him?

It would be helpful to include descriptions of Delbert’s character, compassion, integrity, accomplishments, interests, relationships, education, upbringing, family life, interaction with and treatment of other people, and your personal and/or professional relationship with him. Is he compassionate? Generous? A role model towards others? Trustworthy? Committed to making the world a better place? Explain why you think this way about him.

When writing about Delbert, please give SPECIFICS: Don’t just say he is “a good person,” instead describe the specific things he has done that show that he is a good person. Has he helped you personally in some way? Provided you with support or mentorship? If there are anecdotes that would help the reader develop a better picture Delbert, we encourage you to share those.

The letter must include Delbert’s full name and ID number, along with the name of the prison where he is held:
Delbert Orr Africa #AM-4985 SCI-Dallas

Do not hesitate to write from the heart, and/or emphasize anything you feel is important. One of the goals of your letter is to enable the reader to see Delbert through your eyes.

Post-release support:
If you are in a position to be able to support Delbert when he is released, please state that in the letter. Are you able to support him financially? Provide him with housing? Offer him employment?

What to avoid:
Please DO NOT dispute any of the legal issues in the case. We believe that the MOVE 9 are wrongfully incarcerated, but the parole board is not the venue to challenge their convictions or to discuss the injustices of the criminal legal system. Since this is not an effort to mislead or create a false impression, be honest and do not exaggerate.

ENDING: Your letter should end with your first and last name printed, and with your signature. You must also include your address and phone number.

Please contact their legal team if you have any questions. Please mail your letters to the address below.

Don’t let PA DOC Murder MOVE Member Delbert Africa


Ona Move. The MOVE ORGANIZATION would like to take the time right now to provide people with an update on our Brother Delbert Africa.

Yesterday, August 8th, Delbert returned to SCI Dallas and after processing was placed in the infirmary; Delbert was able to get a phone call to his MOVE Family where he was able to update us on everything.

This morning Family and supporters led a car caravan to both Geisgenger Hospital and SCI Dallas. Delbert’s family was able to secure past work which we can utilize to obtain his medical records.

Friends and Family of Delbert Africa — We Support Delbert Africa!

The second part of the caravan was to SCI Dallas, where Carlos and Will Africa were able to visit Delbert. Delbert appeared in good spirits but still very weak on the visit and was able to fill people in on everything.

At this point, Delbert wants to focus on his parole hearing in September and getting out of prison. Learn how to support Delbert’s parole process. Delbert and family are waiting to obtain copies of the medical report and will take it from there.

Right now Delbert is taking his time to make the right choice and is leery after seeing what happened with Phil Africa and what is currently happening with Chuck.

We are in the process of preparing a second home plan for Delbert in the outlying areas of Philadelphia. If people have any suggestions on a second home plan if the first is denied or need more information you can call Sue Africa 215 387-4107 or Janine Africa 610 704-4524.

At this time Delbert and The MOVE Family would like to thank everyone who made calls, who shared the information through many networks etc. We greatly appreciate your support.

AUGUST 9: The MOVE ORGANIZATION is calling for people to join us this Friday, August 9th at 9:00 am at Geisinger Hospital 1000 East Mountain Blvd. Wilkes-Barre, Pa 18711. If traveling from Philadelphia meet us at 6 am at JFK Blvd and 30th St., Philadelphia for rides. We will also go to SCI Dallas Prison where Delbert was returned Thursday, August 8th.

JULY 2019: Delbert Africa suffering severe swelling from the bottom of his waist all the way down to his toes. Prison officials at SCI Dallas ignored Delbert’s request for medical until this past week when several calls were made to his counselor and he was finally scheduled for a medical visit

We will be holding a demonstration exposing this outright PLANNED MURDER of DELBERT AFRICA by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.

The MOVE ORGANIZATION would like to update people on what is going on right now as it relates to Delbert Africa. We received word from an anonymous source that Delbert is in fact urinating blood, his bladder is impacted and compromised and colon is starting to show wear and tear from the pressure/overworked kidneys. Fluid is still being drained but not rapidly enough. He is awake, conscious, and talking but weak.

A week ago MOVE political prisoner Delbert Orr Africa was taken out of SCI Dallas and transported to an outside hospital where he has since been held incommunicado.

When Delbert was taken from SCI Dallas he had swelling from a fluid buildup. We are now hearing from two different sources that Delbert has no more than 72 hours before he dies. MOVE family members and even his lawyers are being denied access for communication, visitation, contact, and access to documents from prison and hospital officials.

Delbert is scheduled to go before the PA Parole Board this September. MOVE members believe that the government wants to kill Delbert before he can be paroled, and there is evidence that clearly shows this. This government does not want to give ground and parole another innocent MOVE Member, that’s why they are working in conjunction with Prison and hospital officials to murder Delbert.

It would be a feather in the cap for officials to see Delbert DIE. What’s more of a slap in the face is that they are trying to kill him to celebrate on August 8, 1978 – 41 years to the day that Delbert and other MOVE people were kidnapped by this government being innocent and railroaded to prison.

We are highly suspicious of what’s going on here. In 2015 our MOVE 9 Brother Phil Africa was taken to an outside hospital from SCI Dallas with a minor stomach virus. He was held incommunicado for a period of 5 days and upon returning to SCI Dallas he was placed in hospice care only to die a day later.

In March of 1998 after recovering from a stomach virus at SCI Cambridge Springs, MOVE 9 Sister Merle Africa was told by prison officials she was dying only to die a couple of hours later.

The same pattern is repeating itself here.

On Aug. 8, 1978, Delbert was arrested during the Philadelphia police assault on the MOVE house in Powelton Village. Police officer James Ramp died during the 1978 police assault, likely struck by one of the tens of thousands of rounds fired by his fellow officers that day. He was brutally beaten and assaulted by police following this attack.

Nine MOVE members were all found guilty of firing the same bullet and were convicted of murder, assault and conspiracy by the late Judge Edwin S. Malmed. The MOVE 9 were subsequently sentenced to 30 to 100 years in prison.” (onamove.com) Despite serving over 40 years of a 30-to-100-year sentence, Delbert Africa remains unjustly imprisoned.

The MOVE ORGANIZATION is calling for people to join us this Friday, August 9th, 2019 at 9:00 am at Hospital 1000 East Mountain Blvd. Wilkes-Barre, Pa 18711.
If you are traveling from Philadelphia meet at JFK Blvd and 30th St. at 6 am for rides.
