Angela Davis Is Latest Black Target Of Israel Lobby

Posted on

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute has canceled its annual gala at which iconic Black scholar and activist Angela Davis was to receive a prestigious human rights award. Randall Woodfin, the mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, expressed his “dismay” at the decision, which he said came “after protests from our local Jewish community and some of its allies.” “The reactive decision of the BCRI did not create an opportunity for necessary consensus dialogue,” Woodfin added. Davis is the latest prominent Black intellectual and outspoken supporter of Palestinian rights to be targeted by the Israel lobby.
