Angela Davis

So after my sister posted her remix project on her site, I've been reading up on Angela Davis some more and been pretty intrigued. She was a Black Panther who was a member of the communist party and who was put on the FBI's most wanted list for conspiracy and kidnapping:

On August 18, 1970, Davis became the third woman and the 309th individual to appear on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List when she was charged with conspiracy, kidnapping, and homicide, due to her alleged participation in an escape attempt from Marin County Hall of Justice.

That episode at the Marin County Hall of Justice is detailed more here, from the perspective of a crazy photographer. Wow. If you get a chance, read a bit from this, it's pretty astounding. I can't believe how insane the 60s and 70s must have been. It makes me think though. Where's the passion, the outrage, the revolution in our generation? Is it really that uncool to care about anything these days?
