  • Description

    Angela Davis, recently acquitted of murder, kidnapping and conspiracy charges by a California jury, continued her U.S. speaking tour by addressing a rally in Detroit, Michigan on Sunday (18 June).

    Strict security measures were taken, as everyone attending the rally wan thoroughly searched. Arriving three hours late, Miss Davis was escorted to the speaker's platform by twenty-bodyguards.

    Speaking from behind a bullet-proof screen, Miss Davis told the crowd of 12,000 that the battle against oppression must continue. She said that too much celebrating ever her acquittal might obscure the vision of the reality of oppression.

    The black communist and former philosophy professor is touring the United States to thank her supporters and to raise money to pay her defence costs.
