I need to talk about this one more either on my channel or on my blog (or both?) but in the mean time everyone else should read it! The discussion on my channel so far:

"Freedom is still more expansive than civil rights." I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about what was excluded from my education. Why are some voices or contributions left out? Is it simply a factor of a formula that there are only so many hours in a day, so many days in Black History mon...

Every time I read Angela Davis, I am impressed with the way she can explain complex, difficult things with such ease; half the time I find myself saying "yes! that's exactly what I've been waiting for someone to put like that" and the other half the time I'm having my mind blown. This collection...

While what she was saying needed to be repeated I felt those pages could have been better served di...

Of course Davis is brilliant, but this book is cobbled together out of speech transcripts and mediocre, reletively shallow interviews in order to get it on shelves quickly. Many of the speeches are near identical, using the same bulletpoints addressing slightly different audiences. The book is in...
