Review: 'Free Angela and All Political Prisoners' studies a radical
Documentarian Shola Lynch, who previously profiled Shirley Chisholm's groundbreaking run for president, turns her lens on another significant African American female figure from the early '70s in "Free Angela and All Political Prisoners." Applying her "historical vérité" style to one of the most publicized trials in one of the most combative and hopeful periods in U.S. (and California) annals, she has assembled a detailed oral history. At its center is a new and lengthy interview with Angela Davis.
