Pondering Perpetual Pandemic Racism

For nearly two years, Ulysses has produced powerful multi-faceted platforms to bring new light to the Philadelphia MOVE phenomenon, one of the most tragic stories in the city's recent history. With the support of his wife, Dr. Pauline Thompson (far left) and dozens of social justice advocates, Ulysses has creatively crafted forums, podcasts and broadcasts aimed at educating the public about the horrific injustices inflicted on a family, a neighborhood, a city and our nation.
Philadelphia and The MOVE Apology
On May 13, 1985, The City of Philadelphia Police Department dropped an highly explosive device on the home of the MOVE family, killing 11 men, women and children. A fire consumed 61 homes and left more than 250 people homeless. This tragic event came after years of conflict between the Philadelphia police, Philadelphia officials, the MOVE family members and the many residents. The stories are many. The pain is great. Ulysses says an official apology will not bring closure. Instead it will usher a new beginning.
