Racial Justice Film Series: Free Angela and All Political Prisoners (Film and Discussion)

September 24, 2020 • 7:00 PM • Virtual

Please join us for the first event in our three-part Racial Justice Film Series: a screening of "Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners." This documentary chronicles the life of Professor Angela Davis, who was 26 years old when her activism with social movements such as the Black Panthers and others put her in the cross-hairs of some of the most powerful people in the U.S. Government, including the FBI. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Professor Michael Tigar, who was counsel to Angela Davis, and will be moderated by Professor Jesse McCoy of the Duke Civil Justice Clinic.
