A few years ago, my job assignment was accompanying Angela Davis around my city.

Prior to her visit, I read extensively about her life’s work as a scholar and activist for equal rights. Inspired by her writings and speeches, I looked forward to meeting her. The Black Lives Matter movement had just begun at the time of her visit, and much of her visit was likely to focus on that call to action.
