"Free Angela and All Political Prisoners" is a film about an American story: a story about how our government and the US capitalist class maintain their rule domestically with repression, racism and anti-communism.
Those obsessions helped to rationalize the entrapment of tens of thousands of poor working people, disproportionately non-white, in a prison sysem that segregated by race, that put people in bondage and that framed up, tortured and murdered people when they rebelled.
It is a story of how that same system fueled by anti-communism and racism, took many innocent lives and nearly took the life of a courageous black woman communist, a scholar and political activist, because she fought to end that system of oppression and to transform society.
You don't want to miss this movie which Baltimore's own Jada Pinkett helped to finance.
Jarvis Tyner, a friend and comrade of Angela's, will introduce the movie and speak about the significance of Angel's life for today's struggles, including justice for Trayvon Martin.
"The Autobiography of Angela Davis" and other books by Angela, books on U.S. political prisoners, books such as "Are Prisons Obsolete?" and other current titles will be on sale as will original art by MICA students.
