The 13 Challenge!
I’m trying to make a positive impact for my community!

Life is a journey filled with ups and downs. As you know my life has no shortage of downs. But instead of allowing my struggles to turn me against myself or the people in my community, I use them as fuel to inspire with a positive outlook.

Don't let your circumstances stop you from believing that you are more than the bad hand you were dealt.

Here's the deal: Training begins on January 1st because starting May 2024 for 13 months leading up to May 2025, the 40 year anniversary of the bombing of my family I’ll be focused on personal growth, healing and honoring the people that lost their lives in the fire. Running is how I honor their memory because running is something we always did together.

I’d love it if you would run with me. Head over to my website www.MikeAfricajr.com to learn more of how you can participate, support, and share the 13 Challenge with your friends and family.

Spread the word by tagging people that you think would appreciate this journey, whether joining or spectating. Together, let's create a ripple effect of positivity!

Use to share your journey and see the incredible stories of other participants. 📸
I look forward to seeing you at the starting line.
It’s Hard Work but it’s worth it.

Day 2 Kujichagulia - Self Determination

Self-Determinarion is a powerful principle. I see it a couple of ways. The one way I see it is that it means knowledge of self, and determining what you want to do with your gift of life. The other way I see it is once you’re clear about your direction, be determined to see it through.

Through self determination I was able to make a way to bring my parents Home!

Fondest Holiday Memory

Embracing the spirit of giving in a big way!

The holiday season of 2010, I decided to go all out, even though it's not always my tradition. There's something magical about big surprises and creating unforgettable moments. On this day of 2010 I surprised Robin by handing her the keys to her new home—a gesture filled with warmth and the true essence of the season.

In a world often caught up in the hustle and struggle of everyday grinding I took the time to make one of her dreams come true and it felt incredible. The joy on Robin's face as she stepped into her new space was priceless. It's a reminder that the spirit of giving goes beyond material gifts; it's about creating lasting memories and fostering connections. I couldn’t afford a house that was already finished so I bought a fixer upper. Robin was so happy we had a house that’s she dove right into helping me make it a home.

Whether you celebrate Kwanzaa, Christmas, the season or have your own unique way, It’s important to find ways to make these moments special for those around you. It's also important to remember that many people don’t have the opportunity to be with their families. I take every opportunity to shower my family with love. That intention is its own reward. I’m wishing everyone a festive and heartwarming season! I hope your season is filled with all the love and joy you’ve worked so hard for.

Making history.

Remembering MOVE: May 13, 1985 is an important piece of Philadelphia history. Although the city can never make up for the lives they stole from my family, this permanent installation is an important teaching tool that can help educate people about the bombing of MOVE. Many people put a lot of time and energy into this exhibit. The care and intention to wade through MOVE’s complicated history and focus on the core history using neutral party perspectives offers an important viewpoint. Thank you to all the people that worked to bring this exhibit to life. There are to many people to name everyone but I have to mention Jamie Gauthier Creative Philadelphia Keir Grey Abolitionist Law Center The work continues, you already know.

For my peoples that want to check out the exhibit with me, I’m headed down this Friday at 11am. I am inviting you to join me in visiting the exhibit so we can check it out together.

Memphis officials revealed that a 6th officer involved in the traffic stop that led to Tyre Nichols’ death has been ‘relieved of duty.’ Ofc. Preston Hemphill violently pulled Tyre from his car, hit him on the ground with a Taser, then said, "I hope they stomp his ass!"

What did Tyre do to justify being beaten to death? And why are we just learning about this officer?

May 13, 1985 changed the city of Philadelphia forever.

On this day, Philadelphia police dropped a military grade bomb on members of the MOVE organization living at 6221 Osage Ave. Eleven Black men, women and children were murdered after police ordered fire fighters to "let the fire burn" & shot MOVE members back into the home as they tried to escape. The violent attack came after over a decade of police violence & repression of MOVE activists, including the MOVE 9 who were political prisoners for 40 years and who is still in prison for over 40 years as well. A Black neighborhood was destroyed in the process.

On the 37th anniversary, join us at the Osage Avenue and Cobbs Creek Parkway for a day of remembrance to honor the lives of MOVE victims lost to this horrific act of police terrorism.

As long I can remember we, the MOVE Organization have been forced to watch incompetent and unprofessional investigators cover up what really happened on May 13th 1985. The bombing of MOVE is more gruesome and disturbing than the public have ever had the opportunity to learn. Evidence that has been intentionally buried and kept from the public view.

Sometimes you have to do your own investigation.
