Black Enterprise, Marc Lamont Hill Interviews Angela Davis


This Week on Our World: Iconic Activist and Scholar Dr. Angela Y. Davis

With knowledge being the key to freedom, it stands to reason that the truth combined with that knowledge, will ultimately set the mind body and soul free.

Marc Lamont Hill of Black Enterprise interviews Angela Davis, a symbol of knowledge and an icon of African American pride and freedom.

I and as you will see in the interview, had no idea she was a professor before becoming a symbol of the African American freedom movement.

Earlier today I met an African American veteran at the VA Hospital and its quite a coincident of how he spoke of being apart of an equal rights movement in San Francisco during the sixties. We talked about the responsibility of the next generation to seek knowledge and stand for freedom. The prior generation can only disseminate that knowledge and past down the skill with  intent to motivate, its up to the new generation to grab hold, rise to the occasion and carry the flame of freedom.
