Angela Davis is known internationally for her ongoing resistance to all forms of oppression, supporting the movements of social justice in the. U.S and abroad.Her messages from the past still hold much power and relevance, especially in relation to events that have happened in our recent past
excerpt from the black power mixtape
"I mean that's why when someone asks me about violence.... I just find it incredible. Because what it means is that the person asking that question has no idea what people have gone through... what black people have experienced in this country since the time the first black person was kidnapped from the shores of Africa."
"Something is wrong.... Maybe the real criminals in this society are not the people who populate the prisons... but those who have stolen the wealth of the world from the people... and everytime a Black child dies ....we should indict them for murder because they're the ones who killed that black child."
" No potential victim of the fascist terror should be without the knowledge that the greatest menace to racism and fascism is unity!"
