Renowned activist to speak at WSU
Angela Davis, the public face of the 1970s black power movement and noted scholar, will present the keynote address of Washington State University's Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Senior Ballroom of the CUB.
The event is free and open to the public

Check out the October 26, 1970 (that's right . . . 44 YEARS AGO!) edition of the UI (as in "University of Idaho") Buffalo Free Press, created by students of UI at . . .


Somewhere in my piles and piles and piles of collections is an MP3 recording of a speech given by then-professor Angela Davis (of UCLA) about immigration, circa 1968 (or was it 1969).

Seeya there, Moscow, because . . .
