Move Bombing marker unveiled in West Philadelphia

WEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It is an incident that remains a controversial part of Philadelphia's modern history.

But Saturday, the Move Bombing is getting a visible place in the city's history, none the less.

A historical marker was unveiled during a ceremony this afternoon at Osage Avenue and Cobbs Creek Parkway, where the Move activist community lived until they along with neighbors were bombed in 1985.

The marker is the result of two years' worth of work by students at the Jubilee School.
