MY THOUGHTS:

AFTER MY RESEARCH I BECAME LITERATE OF HER HIGH LEVELS OF EDUCATION, IN WHICH PRECEDED HER DOCTORATE IN PHILOSOPHY. HER CONSISTENT AND PASSIONATE ADVOCACY FOR THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, ESPECIALLY THE PRISON SYSTEM IN THE NATION, IS ONE THAT CONTINUES CURRENTLY. UNAWARE AND UNINFORMED ON ISSUES THAT OUR COMMUNITY FACED, DESPITE WHAT THE LAW ENTAILED, ANGELA DAVIS IS SOMEONE THAT I AM GLAD I HAVE KNOWLEDGE ON NOW. HER WORDS ARE GENUINE AND HER FIGHT IS PURE, WHICH IS WHY SHE CAN STILL BE HEARD TO THIS DAY.
