Why are black brothers still trying to please whites, instead of fighting those who dominate and oppress them?
Angela Davis is a teenager when she begins to ask herself these and other questions. At the time, she lives in the Dynamite Hill neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama, where the KuKluxKlan places bombs in front of the houses of black families to force them to leave their homes.
The book brings us closer to the life of one of the icons of feminism and one of the most emblematic figures in the fight against racism and in favor of equality in the United States. It focuses especially on Angela Davis' political activism during the 1960s in Los Angeles.
