Angela Davis was born in 1944 in Alabama, growing up in a neighborhood targeted by the Ku Klux Klan. In the late 1960’s she became a member of the Black Panthers, as well as the Che-Lumumba Club, which was an all-Black branch of the Communist Party. Due to her involvement in communism, Angela was fired from her professorship at UCLA, but she fought them in court and got her job back.
She was a strong supporter of the so-called Soledad Brothers, who were prison inmates accused of killing a guard in retaliation for another guard killing several African American inmates. There was a hostage incident during the 1970 trial of one of the Soledad brothers where two people, including the hostage himself, were killed. Angela was charged for having a role in the event and went into hiding, becoming one of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” before being caught two months later. She spent 18 months in jail and was then acquitted. She eventually returned to teaching, has written numerous books, and is known for her activism and outspoken opinions on racism and oppression.
