Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

SOLD OUT! TUESDAY, AUGUST 20, 7:00 pm Martha’s Vineyard Performing Arts Center, Oak Bluffs
Dir. Shola Lynch | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2012 | 102 min.

Discussion to follow with film subjects Angela Davis and Margaret Burnham, and director Shola Lynch, moderated by Charlayne Hunter-Gault and hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

 Angela Davis became an international icon of social revolution and progressive politics, and she remains one today. This vivid and well-researched portrait chronicles the high stakes crime, political movement, and trial that catapulted the 26-year-old philosophy professor to fame in the Seventies. Nearly forty years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom. Eloquent and unabashed as she nears seventy, Davis commands the screen in this fascinating account of justice and strength.
