If they come in the morning : voices of resistance by Angela Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Dust Jacket: The trial of Angela Yvonne Davis in connection with the prisoner revolt by three black prisoners on August 7, 1970 at the Marin County Courthouse will be remembered as one of America's most historic political trials, and no one can tell the story better than Miss Davis herself. This book is also perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough analysis of that increasingly important symbol-the political prisoner. Of her trial, Miss Davis writes, "I am charged with three capital offenses-murder, kidnapping and conspiracy. My life is at stake in this case-not simply the life of a lone individual, but a life which has been given over to the struggles of my people, a life which belongs to Black people who are tired of poverty, and racism, of the unjust imprisonment of tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters." "I stand before this court", she declares, "as a target of a political frame up which, far from pointing to my culpability, implicates the State of California as an agent of political repression. I declare publicly before the court, before the people of this country, that I am innocent of all charges which have been leveled against me by the State of California." On the central theme of this book Miss Davis contends that "the offense of the political prisoner in his political boldness, his consistent challenges-legally or extra-legally-of fundamental social wrongs fostered and reinforced by the state. He has opposed unjust laws and exploitative, racist social conditions in general, with the ultimate aim of transforming these laws and the society into an order harmonious with the material and spiritual need and interests of the vast majority of its members." Regarding his own defense, Ruchell Magee, the only prisoner who survived the same revolt and one of the many impressive contributors in this invaluable volume which includes George Jackson, Fleeta Drumgo, John Cluthcette, James Baldwin, Bobby Seale and Ericka Huggins, states, "For over seven years I have been forced to stay in slavery on fraudulent pleas of guilty, made by attorneys, court-appointed attorneys, over my objection, over my plea of not guilty, and over my testimony of not guilty."

Free Angela Davis, and all political prisoners! : a transnational campaign for liberation by Bettina Aptheker( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1970 California issued a warrant for the arrest of political activist and scholar Angela Y. Davis and the FBI placed her on its Ten Most Wanted list. The police search and her arrest in New York City in October 1970 garnered national media attention and marked the beginning of a nearly two-year national and international campaign to free Angela Davis. This archive brings together personal letters, public statements and other documents that highlight key aspects of Angela Davis's case and the organizing campaign to secure her freedom. It illuminates the campaign's transnational reach and the ways Davis's case inspired individuals as well as an emerging movement that critically linked U.S. racism and its prison system
