Angela Davis Speaks! Get inspired by the words of this fighter for human rights.
I came across this recording while in search of Dr. Davis' latest book "The Meaning of Freedom: And Other Difficult Dialogues." The last time I saw and "Angela Davis Speaks" recording it had been released in 1971 and I found it on iTunes. Perhaps this updated short performance is Audible's way of "testing the waters" to see if publications by this author will sell. In this age of electronic texts, things written and narrated by thinkers will most assuredly be profitable.
Angela Davis is one of the most important minds in existence today. The ideas and the issues she brings forth are relevant and will cause the listener to pause and rethink their own views. Her life has been spent in the pursuit of justice and her oratory arguments hit their mark time after time.
I would have given this 5 stars overall but the editing of this short narration leaves a bit to be desired. This recording is a series of topics (ideas) that have been culled from speeches Angela has given. The problem is that the segue between the topics (or ideas) is choppy so that the recording does not flow as it should. Granted this may have been acceptable back in 1971 when the original "Angela Speaks" was recorded, today the listener expects a recording that is tad amount to actually being in the lecture or performance hall with the orator.
Overall I enjoyed the recording and would purchase it again.

I love Angela Davis, but this was a choppy selection of a talk. Better options available on you tube for free. Not worth purchasing.

There's nothing like hearing her voice ,Angela by Angela!
This must be the weirdest montage of 5 minutes chunks of speeches I've ever heard.
I enjoyed rhis book. Angela has a flow of speaking that just leaves you spellbound.
I love the tone of her voice and message in her speeches..all of them are awesome.
Although i love the content, but audio just ends abruptly, which is a bit disappointing.
Great information and outlook on real issues which are still realivent today in 2017. "1 People!'
