Target: Philadelphia

Target: Philadelphia

Synopsis

In 1985, Philadelphia police bombed a residential building to end a standoff with Black militant group MOVE, setting a new standard for institutional violence and the dehumanization of Black bodies. TARGET: PHILADELPHIA explores the rise of police militarization within the contexts of Black nationalism and the systemic disenfranchisement that incubates movements like Black Lives Matter.
