Angela Davis

At Black Girls Rock! in 2013, political activist, scholar and author Angela Davis was awarded the Icon Award for her continuous work to abolish the prison-industrial complex. Davis, who had close relations with the Black Panther party, became an icon of the Black Power movement in the 1970’s. Her ongoing fight against a myriad of social justice issues has reinforced her admirable #SHINESTRONG status for the past several decades.
