A few days after activist Angela Davis was found not guilty of all the charges against her, she spoke at the Embassy Auditorium in Los Angeles about her experiences in prison and her commitment to the prison movement. She explores the value of organizing in order to bring about prison reform, how both men and women are political prisoners, and the movement to abolish systemic oppression. She is introduced by Leo Branton, one of her attorneys. Davis' speech was recorded by Emil Freed of the Southern California Library for Social Studies and Research.
