For my project I wrote about Angela Davis, feminist, civil rights activist, prison rights activist, revolutionary, communist, scholar, professor, etc.
I was excited by the different representations I found of her online.
I enjoyed writing about her in my paper and researching her. I was also surprised by how many people from my generation were unfamiliar with her.
Angela Davis at Occupy Oakland
I can’t wait to see what everyone else wrote about.
This semester I particularly enjoyed discussing Barbie, Muhammad Ali and McDonalds. I think that it would be interesting if you included Aunt Jemima to examine representations of black women (Mammy).
