Inside USA - Angela Davis  
  Her hair made her an enduring symbol of 1970's Black Power. Her politics made her a revolutionary, a Communist and then a fugitive.

Angela Davis was only 26 years old when the FBI put her on the ten 'Most Wanted' list. She spent months underground and then in jail until an all-white jury set her free.

But her time in prison changed her and four decades later she is the best-known prison abolitionist in the US.

Davis joins Inside USA to discuss incarceration in the 'land of the free', capitalism in a time of economic crisis and what it means to be the face of Black Power in a supposedly post-racial US.
