This week marked the 29th anniversary of the Philadelphia police’s deadly confrontation with the black liberation group MOVE. On May 13, 1985, police bombed an entire city block in its attack on the organization, killing 11 people (including five children) and injuring dozens more.


The PBS documentary “Let the Fire Burn” is streaming for free online until May 19. It uses archival footage and interviews with survivors to tell the tale. Watch it here.
