Codeblack Films has acquired the rights to Shola Lynch’s documentary about Angela Davis. They have partnered with BET Networks to bring “Free Angela And All Political Prisoners” to various AMC Theatres April 5th. Angela Davis became known to the American consciousness in 1970 when J.Edgar Hoover put her on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for purchasing the guns that were used in the Marin County courthouse incident. Davis was acquitted two years later and became an international symbol of freedom-fighting because of her imprisonment on weak charges and her outspoken politics. John Lennon, Yoko Ono and The Rolling Stones help commit her to pop culture with their songs about her. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Jay-Z are executive producers of the film project and you can keep up with the film’s distribution development at their Facebook page.
