    After 40 years, first of MOVE 9 is paroled - but others denied
    On Saturday, Debbie Africa left the State Correctional Institution Cambridge Springs and, after 38 years, became the first of the MOVE Nine to be released on parole. She also said goodbye to two women she's been incarcerated with for four decades. Both were denied parole last week, for reasons Africa can't understand.

    A gnawed bag of raw poultry, meat particles on the ceiling close Philly eateries
    A gnawed bag of raw poultry with mouse feces on the package in a walk-in cooler is just gross. Knowing there could be meat particles on the ceiling will have me looking up from now on. And, the person in charge at another restaurant placed his hand inside a rice container after handling a container with mice droppings....ick.

Congrats to our friends and partners from Community Solutions CDC on this great write-up about their Father's Day Block Party tomorrow! Go check it out if you can, they have lots of fun stuff in store. And Happy Father's Day in advance to all the dads in the community!

    How does West Philly celebrate Father's Day? With a 1,000-person block party
    West Philly likes block parties. A lot. Two years ago, it ranked first for the Philadelphia neighborhood with the most block parties in the entire city. So naturally, warm weather holidays often mean more of the same: outdoor fun featuring barbecues, bouncy castles, the closing of streets and re-routing of SEPTA buses.

Most sites will be funded through bonds paid for by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax.

A Brief History Of Race & Contested Space In West Philly

At the May 12 unveiling of the Breaking Chains mural at 500 S. 52nd Street in West Philadelphia, Congressman Dwight Evans said, “This mural sends a message. I’ve always said that you have to change the environment to change behavior and what is taking place here is a changing of the environment.”

The letter, from Mrs. Howard Frower, reads, “Beautiful Black Oak Park, 51st & 52d, Pine & Larchwood, is provided with 38 benches. Ten of them are so rickety one hesitates...

    Queen Village makes room for memorial to a historic African American burial ground | Inga Saffron
    Over the course of his two-plus years in office, Mayor Kenney has been unable to make good on his signature campaign promise to rebuild the city's dilapidated rec centers. But last month his administration quietly took the first step toward demolishing a perfectly sound and heavily used Queen Village meeting hall.
