Poster printed with black and red ink on white paper. "Attention, Move! This is America!" is printed at top in an angular-style font. Smaller text at upper right continues, "by Margot Harry / A probing, challenging report on the Philadelphia bombing of MOVE." More information on the book including contributing authors, pricing, and the publisher contact information is listed below. Opposite, a reproduction of an artwork is printed at a slight angle on the page. The image shows a cityscape at night with a red crescent moon in the sky and eyes floating above the roofline of several buildings. A large figure with a tiger's head speaks into a bullhorn at top left. A smaller female figure appears under the bullhorn and is encircled in two red lines. A round figure in a suit and tie with a US coin for a head grabs one of the red circles at bottom left. Small text on the bottom of the page in several paragraphs discusses the topic of Harry's book when on "May 13, 1985, Mayor Wilson Goode ordered the Philadelphia Police Department to drop a bomb on the house of the Black radical MOVE organization." Critical reviews from John H. Clarke, Robert F. Williams, Race & Class, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and Lester Bowie appear below.
