HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH x Angela Davis & Watch @Becauseofthem #BlackHistoryMonth Video! ❤️ cc @CNN via @lisafordblog

Happy Black History Month! The photo you see is of Angela Davis when Swedish TV journalists talked to the Black Panther activist in a 1972 jail interview — she was charged with but not convicted of murder — in footage that's part of The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (and I'll elaborate on this in a moment). My sister was named after Angela Davis, "Angela Yvonne", so this is why I chose to shine a little light on Davis, in addition to the dope video by..., for my black history tribute.
