Synopsis

Angela Davis was a young philosophy professor who became a controversial political icon in the late 1960's. Davis' involvement with the Communist Party, the Black Panthers and her work in the growing prison reform movement got her national media attention and found her fighting to keep her job. She was seen by some as a dangerous subversive menace and by others as a strong leader who challenged authority and advocated "Power to All People."
