Free Angela Iconic Button Series
As part of the Made History Iconic Button Collection, our brand is proud to present its “FREE Angela” Iconic Button Series in tribute to activist, educator, and writer, Angela Davis.
For more than four decades, Angela Davis has been one of most influential activists and intellectuals in the United States. An icon of the 1970s black liberation movement, Davis’ work around issues of gender, race, class and prisons has influenced critical thought and social movements across color lines.
During her sixteen-month incarceration, a massive international "Free Angela Davis" campaign was organized, leading to her acquittal in 1972. Today, Davis is a leading advocate for prison abolition, a position informed by her own experience as a fugitive on the FBI’s top 10 most wanted list more than 40 years ago.
