Angela Davis (born Jan 26, 1944) is an American political activist, scholar, and author. Davis was most politically active during the late 1960s through the 1970s and was associated with the Communist Party USA, the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Panther Party.
42 years ago today, Black Panther’s Fred Hampton and Mark Clark were murdered in their beds by the FBI. Hampton was drugged by an inside informant and shot twice in the head at point blank range. At the time, the FBI reported an intense fire fight, but it later emerged that they had fired 80 shots and the Panthers had fired one. Lying, murdering scum. Then and now.
