Directed by Shola Lynch | 2012

Nearly 40 years after the high-stakes trial that catapulted 26-year-old Angela Davis into the limelight as a revolutionary icon, the author, academic, and activist speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom. This 2012 documentary chronicles the life of the young UCLA philosophy professor, and tells how her social activism implicated her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ended with a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.”
