  • Description

    In Los Angeles, California, Miss Angela Davis, the black philosophy professor who was recently acquitted of murder, kidnapping and conspiracy charges, began a U.S. speaking tour Friday night (9 June) under tight security.

    Many of the 1,800 people who entered the hall to hear Miss Davis speak about her trial and prison reform were searched by her supporters for weapons and told not to rise and applaud "for security reasons."
    The Los Angeles engagement opened the tour Miss Davis is taking to thank her supporters and to raise money to pay her defence costs.

    Later, police reported the arrest of an armed man who claimed to be Miss Davis' body guard after a shot was fired outside the hall. Police said the shot injured no one.
