Editors of USA Today Honor Communist Angela Davis. Women's History Month: Women of color whose names you should know

USA Today has become a radical newspaper. The Editors of USA Today have honored Comrade Angela Davis:
Born in Birmingham, Ala., Angela Davis rose to prominence during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement due to her involvement with the Communist party. She was targeted by the FBI, making its 10 Most Wanted List, and later imprisoned but then acquitted on murder and kidnapping charges in association with a courtroom attack during the trial of the Soledad Brothers, three African-American inmates charged with the murder of a white prison guard. She has been a professor and author and today focuses on battling the "industrial prison complex" in the U.S. as well as the role of black women and the rise of intersectionality in feminism.
USA Today should look at its' bloody hands on this one.
