Angela Davis on community, the prison industrial complex, and priviledge. She became a national public figure. And despite her qualifications and excellent teaching record, the California Board of Regents refused to renew her appointment as a philosophy lecturer in 1970. Even California’s then, Governor Ronald Reagan, exclaimed, “that she would never work in the state of California again.” Soon other people began to approach her, for help regarding different situations. One of those people in particular was a young black inmate at a Corrections facility named Hekima. After further consultation, Angela soon learned first-hand of the injustices surrounding the corrections systems of California.
