NEW YORK CITY – During the largest protest in U.S. history, the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as president, civil rights icon Angela Davis once again inspired hundreds of thousands on the main stage in Washington D.C., a major site of struggle against the concentrated power of transnational corporations.

She reminded those in attendance that we working people, “the hundreds of thousands, the millions of women, trans-people, men and youth who are here at the Women’s March, we represent the powerful forces of change that are determined to prevent the dying cultures of racism, hetero-patriarchy from rising again.”

And she knew well of what she spoke. In her youth, when Ronald Reagan was governor of California, he had targeted her for death because already in her younger years she represented everything the ruling class had to eliminate. Davis was a young woman, an African American, a brilliant college professor and writer, and a leader of the Communist Party USA. She, more than most, represented all of the things the ruling class of the day feared most. Her exoneration on the trumped up charges against her represented a victory for all of the people’s movements that fought for her freedom.

This Saturday, March 4th, Angela Davis is making her way to the city of Wall Street for the 2017 We’re Not Going Back Unity Rally. Organized by the New York District of the Communist Party USA and the People Before Profits Education Fund, the event will draw leaders in the fight for the 99 percent to the Henry Winston Unity Hall to develop a higher level of united mass struggle against racism, sexism, religious intolerance, and all forms of bigotry.
