In 1970 African American activist Angela Davis, a college professor, became a symbol of defiance for many young radicals.
She was accused of supplying a gun for a deadly courtroom shootout after an African American prisoner she had defended was killed.
When she fled arrest, the FBI put her on the “10 Most Wanted” list.
Later, after she was caught and charged with murder, many people protested, arguing that she was innocent. “Free Angela” T-shirts and bumper stickers spread across the country.
After more than a year in jail, Davis was tried and found not guilty.
