Angela Y. Davis in Paris…

March 29, 2012

This is a fascinating essay on social activist Angela Y. Davis’ early life in France and Birmingham, Alabama. I met her once in the 1980s; gave her flowers and sat at her feet while crypto-klansman protested her presence. I was as mesmerized by her choice of fancy Reebok sneakers, her winks, and her smile as I was by her lecture. The Lady is a marvel.
