Angela Davis was one of the most famous voices (and faces) of African American political activism in the 1960s and ’70s.

    video won’t play on my android
    even using Chrome
    howver this link
    is probably the video

      It’s not. Angela Davis isn’t even in this video you linked to. You could wait til you get to a desktop if it’s not working for you.

        thanks gramps
        that was point
        most people are now using tablets & dumbphones
        time to adjust the site accordingly
        you’re right
        that ain’t her
        and google doesn’t list the vid anywhere

          So let me get this right your point was because you can’t watch it from a phone people should settle for a video that is in no way related to the post?!? That’s grampa logic if we’re going down the name calling path.

            thanks gramps
            I’m gonna go find a box
            and then I’m gona get a crack telephone
            and a 128kb modem for it
            and surf the net the right way
            like grampa does

    a video played for me, I think it was angela davis, but, I shut it off due to ‘music’? background,.. I found it grating and just shut it down. I really wanted to hear what she had to say, but, not enough to put up with that sound!
