Angela Davis

Angela Davis is a leading Feminist Studies professor who was a prominent member of the Black Panther and Communist Parties in the 1960s and 1970s. An icon of the Black Power movement, Davis was once placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list for kidnapping and murder. She was later found not guilty of either charge. In the 1980s she was a vice presidential candidate on the Communist Party USA ticket. She has since taken her message of social justice to the classroom, as a Professor Emerita of History Consciousness at the University of California Santa Cruz.
