Angela Davis

Is inspirational really the word to use? You know when you are in the presence of someone who causes a subtle, yet life changing, tweak in your perception on the world? Yeah.

Such was the case after getting to hear Angela Davis speak (oh, please google if you don’t know who I’m speaking about).

Eloquent and poetic freedom fighter who spoke of gender, race, equality, freedom, imprisonment, and a slew of other topics that speak to the human condition. The need for us to open a dialogue on those things we ignore. The need for us to create a language for it. How we have created a society striving for individualism, shunning the sense of community that fosters humanity and is fundamental to any social being.
