My story is about fighting for my parent's release of unjust imprisonment. Director/Producer Tommy Oliver's film shows my journey of a decades-long struggle to be reunited with my parents.
Im'm an activist, writer, and podcaster. I'm a keynote speaker and stage performer who entertains my audience with storytelling.
At 13 years old, I began working to free my parents from prison. After over 25 years of struggle, with the help of my family and attorneys Brad Thomson & Bret Grote, my mom was out of prison just before my 40th birthday. Through my podcast, Ona Move with Mike Africa, Jr., we share this story and others'.
Since the release of my parents I have not stopped working. My main mission in life is to help reduce the suffering of other people. The best way for me to do that is to constantly remind people of the pain that I and others in my family and outside of my family have suffered.
In 2019 I launched the Apology Campaign. The goal was to get elected officials in Philadelphia to apologize for the murder of my people. With the support of Councilwoman Jamie Gauthier we succeeded.
With my parents by my side we worked together to devise creative ways to spread the knowledge. Calling on Jaime Gauthier again to make May 13th an annual Philadelphia Holiday. The day for "Remembrance and Recommitment."
