Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

Political activists don’t come any more intelligent, inspiring or incendiary than Angela Davis, a leading figure of the US civil rights struggle. As a member of the Communist Party and an associate of the Black Panthers, she was anathema to the establishment, which set out to have her silenced. Free Angela and All Political Prisoners is the gripping story of how Davis faced down her enemies and embarked on the road to becoming a global icon of social revolution.
