Angela Davis Quotes

the events that constructed me as a public personality, I am remembered
as a hairdo.

myself to the existence of this historical figure and its relationship
to the work that I'm trying to do today.

bears the imprint of slavery perhaps more than any other institution.

they were free because they could point to the people who weren't free.

by the failure of the affirmative side of abolition all these years
- Racism is not
exactly the same now as it was then. But there were issues that were
never addressed and now present themselves in different manifestations
- You only move on
if you resolve these issues. It took 100 years to get the right to vote.
- It was never about
individuals. I never grew up thinking that the measure of my success
was as an individual.
- I would go so
far as to say that many middle-class black people have internalised
the same racist attitudes to working-class black people as white people
have of the black criminal.
