University of Minnesota features violent former Communist Party/Black Panther leader as a diversity expert

Angela Davis, former Communist Party USA leader and Black Panther, will be delivering a keynote address for the University of Minnesota-Duluth’s (UMD) Summit on Equity, Diversity and Multiculturalism today, according to the school’s website.
Davis is most notorious for being charged as an accomplice to a courthouse murder/kidnapping case in August of 1970, which involved the murder of a California judge. Several of the weapons used were registered in her name and she was charged as an accomplice under state law. In the aftermath of the crime, she was put on the FBI’s most wanted list as she fled from arrest.
She was captured by the FBI three months later at a motel in the middle of New York City. During her trial, Davis claimed she was innocent, despite evidence that showed she purchased two of the weapons used in the crime. Moreover, Davis was found to have written letters to a man named George Jackson, a Black Panther prison organizer; the kidnappings were meant to gain leverage for his release. The letters Davis wrote expressed romantic feelings for Jackson and support for political violence. However, she was acquitted of all charges in 1972.
Davis later ran as the Communist Party USA’s vice-presidential nominee in the 1980 election.
Neither the university’s page on the diversity summit nor the summit’s program mention Davis’s involvement in the case or her prior political affiliation.
Currently, Davis is spearheading the prison-abolition movement as a founder of a group called Critical Resistance, an organization dedicated to ending “the prison-industrial complex.” Her keynote address, “Education or Incarceration: The Prison Industrial Complex in the 21st Century,” will address the subject.

  1. It's bad enough to be holding a Summit on Equity, Diversity and Multiculturalism, but having a black communist murderer as a keynote speaker, who also wants prisons abolished?? And people are actually paying tuition for this??

  2. The radical racist and communist, Angela Davis, is an old face in a new era. She came to the attention of this writer in the early 1970s when the "American" Jewish-owned media extolled her "virtues" on the nightly news. While in jail based on a long forgotten charge, Davis is alleged to have murdered one of her jailers. Although a murder charge was filed against her, Davis was never brought to trial.

  3. This writer vaguely remembers the incident mentioned in the Angela Davis article. He remembers a newspaper photo of two young black men escorting an elderly white judge from a courthouse. The photo showed a shotgun taped to the judge's neck. The social-political revolution of the mid 1960s to the mid '70s was a most interesting time indeed. Unfortunately, this writer was young, dumb and callow during those times. He did not know then about the murderous treachery of the Jews; did not know that the revolution mentioned above was inspired, financed, cheered-on by them. The names Abbe Hoffman and Jerry Rubin were household names during this tumultuous time, but this then young, ignorant and callow writer never made the Jewish connection until decades later when his son, Michael, having come of age and conducted his painstaking research...informed him that the world-wide Jewish power structure was the driving force behind this evil, Satan-inspired revolution. Thank you for the education, enlightenment, Michael!
