Video on the Afro-American philosopher and civil righter Angela Davis. End of the 1960s, she was pursued politically and confronted with false accusations. During the two months that Davis was a fugitive, hundreds of other women were incorrectly identified and many were arrested as Miss Davis. Her case culminated in one of the most famous trials in recent American history. Following a worldwide solidarity campaign, she was acquitted of all charges in 1972.
