Tonight, Chicago will be blessed by the essence of an educational activist by the name of Angela Davis. She is known for her political protests, empowering speeches and unifying personality that aided in fueling the Black Panther Movement and more. She made her mark on history by not being violent and encouraging other minorities to speak up about injustice within our prison systems, communities and more. Come hear her story, chat with a legend and be in the presence of greatness.
