ANGELA YVONNE DAVIS
Radical simply means "grasping things at the root."
Jails and prisons are designed to break human beings, to convert the population into specimens in a zoo - obedient to our keepers, but dangerous to each other.
Today is Angela Davis' 65 birthday. That fact is amazing considering that she was once on the FBI TEN MOST WANTED LIST, and the orders were shoot to kill.
Angela is a life long Communist and political activist. She is also my personal hero.
The main focus of her work today involves the prison system, and anti racism.
Happy Birthday Angela
