Ramona Africa was part of an early collective community in Philadelphia, named by John Africa. Ramona is the lone remaining survivor from the 6221 Osage bomb attacks, in 1985, armed by Police forces, where 11 member of Africa family died and an entire residential block got burned. In the audio recoding Ramona talks about a personal historical fragment inside the Africa family, marked by the guideline of John Africa, hinting to environmentalism, creation of city policies of public order, and the search for a new political imaginary.
