    Hi Jada! I absolutely loved this post. If I’m being honest, I have never heard of Angela Davis before now. However, after learning about her from you, I’m so thankful both for this inspiring woman and for you teaching me about it. I like your argument for why Davis should receive an award, it’s completely valid. However I can’t help but wonder if violence is an appropriate answer to violence. Doesn’t an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? I’m simply playing devil’s advocate, but I would love to hear your opinion on this. Either way, I’m thankful for Angela Davis’s fight against inequality. We should all stand up for what we believe.
