Free Angela and All Political Prisoners 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 1960s. On August 7th, 1970, Dr. Angela Davis is implicated in the politically motivated kidnapping and murder of a judge at the Marin County California courthouse. Her flight, capture, and trial place her at the center of an international movement that identifies her as a political prisoner and works to set her free. Forty years later on the occasion of the anniversary of her acquittal, Free Angela and All Political Prisoners discusses this crucial period of the second half of the twentieth century.

    Hello everyone I reside in South Jersey and I truly love the Arts: film, theater, musicals/plays, and most recently photography. This will be my first film viewing and discussion and I am looking forward to a great film.
