Angela Yvonne Davis was an influential member of the Black Panther Party during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and 70s. She remains today one of the most influential Black American civil rights activists and authors. Many AFRICOBRA members memorialized Davis in their artworks. This painting by Gerald Williams gives life to Davis' words, manifesting her ideas on justice, equal rights, and unity as part of the make-up of her very being. Throughout the image, we see the traditional gender symbol for female, an homage to Davis as a strong, confident, Black, female role model.
