Powerful Must See!

Thanks to Jada Pinkett Smith, Sidra Smith and their staff for this information and fact-filled story. Free Angela & All Political Prisoners fills in all the blanks you might have had about Angela's journey. For those who know nothing about who Angela Davis is and what she's been through, let the awakening begin! Grab your social calendars and add Free Angela now...check for dates and times; as it is only showing in selected cities nationwide as of April 5th. I saw a premiere in Miami at the Women's International Film Festival 2013, and found myself chanting "Free Angela" right along with the movie! You've gotta see this...just do it!(I gave it a 9 out of 10 because the only thing missing is more cities showing it!)

See this Film!!!

I laughed, cried and cheered in THAT order at this film...Brilliant!!! What a wonderful and accurate story that needed to be told accurately. I was at the premiere and sat right in front of Common who was next to Ms. Davis' sister and family. To listen to their raw emotion was priceless. I went to go see it 2 additional times after-wards and I cannot wait to add this film to my very small DVD collection. I don't buy movies...this one will be in my collection. I recall leaving the film and hearing someone say "damn, I am just not doing enough in my life"...for the record, that woman does plenty; but what Ms. Davis went! This is a must see.

Thank you Sidra, Shoyla and Jada for birthing this baby!

well produced and fulfilling film

This is a documentary, but in no way dry or boring. An educated civil rights activist, Angela was arrested and kept in solitary confinement (as so many political prisoners were during the civil rights movement) awaiting trial for murder and conspiracy.

There is excellent footage and well edited interviews with family, lawyers, FBI agents and Angela herself. Angela comes across as an excellent speaker; controlled and factual, and it is no surprise she garnered so much support. The finale is well presented and the film is gripping from start to end. During the time of the civil rights movement in the US, it paints sufficient backdrop to understand the environment in which she was living, but the focus is definitely on her story and her trial.

This film will become an important contribution to material on the civil rights struggle in the US, whilst being easy and accessible to everyone. The personality of the people being interviewed shines through, and throughout a lot of the film I found it both emotional and uplifting. Angela personifies the intellectual struggle to change America.
