Angela Davis inducted into National Women's Hall of Fame

Civil rights icon Angela Davis was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

Davis, a former leader of the Black Panther Party who rose to international fame in the 1970s after she was imprisoned and put on trial for conspiracy charges, said while accepting her award on Saturday that her “consciousness has been enabled always by shared endeavors and collective consciousness.”

“At each significant turning point in my life, when I was introduced to the world of progressive political activism, anti-racist prison abolition struggles, when I myself was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List and ended up spending two years in jail and on trial, when I became involved in many international solidarity efforts, intersectional feminist movements, I’ve always been one of many,” she also said, according to the AP.
