She is a social activist, a scholar and an author, but that’s just the beginning of her story. The rest, is detailed in an upcoming documentary called, “Free Angela Davis And Other Political Prisoners.” The film, which will be released this April in selected cities, chronicles Angela’s meteoric rise from a young college professor to a social activist who gets implicated in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list. In 1997, she revealed that she is a lesbian in Out Magazine.
In this NoMoreDownLow.TV Newsbreak, correspondent Mark Noble catches up with this iconic figure at the 2013 Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles where she talks about the film and her take on the state of the LGBT movement. She is joined by director Shola Lynch and executive producer Jada Pinkett-Smith.
