Angela Davis is without doubt the lastgreat icon of the black liberationmovement. The courage of this woman tostand up to the white establishmentand openly declare Yes Iam a Communist.This declaration almost cost her life. She describes the trials of growingup in one of the most racist citiesin this country Birmingham Alabama. She tells about the events in her lifethat led her to join the communistparty. I am captivated by the convictionsof this remarkable woman.Her fightagainst racism and oppresion is ourfight too. The power of the peoplerose up in her defense and freed thisbeautiful flaming torch in the revolutionary movement.
I think this is a great book. I also think Angela is a great woman. This book is enlightening in a complete sense.
