To kick off Black History Month, I wanted to share my favorite interview of Prof. Davis about her activism in the Black Panthers and at college, being a political prisoner, and why she joined CPUSA. My all-time favorite quote from her is in this interview:

It was important at that time that we recognize that we could be victorious. We were not simply targets of repression, but that we were active historical agents that could set an agenda, fight for that agenda, and win.
