Free Angela and All Political Prisoners - Post Film Discussion

Location: Performance Suite
Ages: All ages
Costs: Free for members, free with museum admission; RSVP required. Limited space.
Following the film screening of Free Angela and All Political Prisoners on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, the Gantt Center will host a post-film discussion led by Dr. Deborah J. Walker. Free Angela and All Political Prisoners, directed by Shola Lynch, is a gripping historic account of the events that catapulted a young University of California philosophy professor into a controversial political icon in the turbulent late 1960’s. This edge-of-your seat thriller presents the story told for the first time by Angela and others who lived through the events firsthand. The interviews recount the politics that led her to challenge authority and spur a worldwide movement for her freedom that cemented Angela Davis, and her signature Afro hairstyle, as an iconic symbol of this still relevant political and social movement — the right to challenge the system. Free Angela is a must see documentary! A candid and powerful account of the tumultuous times and a woman who challenges a society that is afraid of all that she represents. Filled with elements of intrigue, suspense and conspiracies, the film delivers by empowering and inspiring diverse international audiences with its message of hope and redemption.
