So long ago

Seems strange now, but once there was a revolutionary movement in USA. To the left, that is. Angela Davis was a black communist philosophy teacher at UCLA and very medial. Therefore or in spite of that she was accused of conspiracy. Four people were killed in connection to a trial. And the weapons were registered on her.

Davis tells herself what happened. She for a while risked capital punishment. It was maybe the beginning of the political backlash in USA, which still is going on.

Lots of clips in this documentary, showing a time which seems so extremely distanced from our present.
