12 September 2014 | by machetemouseSee all my reviews

Shola Lynch is constant as the northern star and on point in her telling of the Story of Angela Davis. While primarily perceived as a symbol of "Black Power", her rally-cry of Power to the People revealed her true allegiance to the communist party. The film is a wonderful journey through the "way-back machine" for a bird's eye view of the climate of that time. The winds of change were fresh and palpable. Compared to today, what we see now seems cliché and stale due to cooptation, redirection, subversion and self dealing. I had greater confidence in the so called justice system at the time of Angela's trial, before the proverbial new Jim Crow Esq. I would like to see this film widely distributed! Free Angela Davis and all Political Prisoners gets my STAMP! of approval.
