‘Angela Davis: Portrait of a Revolutionary, 1972’
A film by Yolande DuLuart
US/France, 1972, 80 minutes


The late '60s and early '70s produced a large crop of social critics and self-labelled revolutionaries. Outspoken black militant feminist and communist Angela Davis was one of these. Davis, also a professor of philosophy at U.C.L.A., is the subject of this documentary film made by one of her U.C.L.A. students. It features her in the classroom, at a "rap" session, studying quietly, and giving her rumbustious speeches at antiwar and other demonstrations.

Doors 2pm, Film 2.30pm, followed by discussion.

Tickets: £8
