  1. I love the story she tells of her sister and she pretending to be from
    Martinique!! She has for years been an example to me, which I continue to
    move toward!

  4. MY SHERO OF DA BLACK REVOLUTiONARY MOVEMENT OF THE 60Z…..BLACK POWER &
    THANKS QUEEN ELDER ANGELA FOR BEiNG AN EXAMPLE FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATiON
    OF WOMEN FREEDOM FIGHTERZ……

  5. Today, the revolution is individualized and must be directed through
    education. We must educate our youth not in a position of being proud of
    our blackness and appreciating it to the fullest; this positionality should
    not be put in a paradox that is built on the consciousness of superiority
    and hate, but taking pride of who we are as people of color.

  6. The only way to combat neo-Jim Crow we must go back to the south and help
    educate our people. The educational system of the south is visibly and
    systematically unjust. It is our obligation, as black intellectual
    radicals; to keep Dr. Davis and all other voices of Black revolutionaries
    of the past alive b/c it is our only trajectory for mental liberation and
    cultural agency.

  7. I love her honesty, purity and what she truly stand for. We as a nation
    need more leaders and educators with these qualities… 🙂

  8. In the school system, they’ve been teaching everything Eurocentric. Even
    the K-12 program portrays Moses and Jesus as white men.

  9. Within a historical context, we’ve been taught to hate ourselves. Today, we
    must counter this paradigm of self-hate and create a new, progressive black
    radical intellectual consciousness.
