Get in on this viral marvel and start spreading that buzz! To be clear, Angela Yvonne Davis is a force of nature. A communist, Marxist force of nature, who just so happens to be a lesbian coincidence? I think not! And to the uninitiated and untrained eye—in the plainest sense—it would make total sense to deify her. But besides her literary contributions, her activism spans decades. And it was soon actualized when she attended Elisabeth Irwin High School and was subsequently recruited by Advance, a communist youth group. She only got more radical as time went on. While she balanced racking up degrees from universities, like Brandeis University, the University of Frankfurt, and the University of California at San Diego, she became increasingly active in the civil rights movement.

Particularly, when she heard the news of the Birmingham church bombing of —as she knew the victims personally. Her communist beliefs would go on to simultaneously and continuously radicalize her thoughts about the poor conditions of prisons and how they should be abolished a la The Soledad Brothers AND create complications in her life that included getting fired by the University of California at Los Angeles UCLA.

Jackson younger brother of George Jackson. Jackson would later go on to storm a Marin County courtroom and take several hostages in order to secure the release of The Soledad Brothers. Davis was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping in connection with a judge who was killed during the extended hostage situation and eventually was acquitted of all charges —notably after she chose to make the opening defense address herselfdespite having a pretty stacked team of defense attorneys.

Why does this matter? Well, even if one is not in favor of deifying the venerable activist-educator-author, I could understand why one would do it. This has proven to be wildly problematic and, to be honest, unethical with the revived BlackLivesMatter movement this year. While King runs around and pretends he is actually being useful in this moment taking credit for shit he had nothing to do withMcKesson with the help of Campaign Zero, Brittany Packnett Cunningham, and Samuel Sinyangwe attempted to derail the current and ardent calls for the defunding and abolition of the police by advocating for more toothless and painfully liberal reform under 8CantWait.

Of course, all of this is fucking irritating. In addition to being harmful. Not just because of the co-opting and the shameless grabbing at celebrity by these two which is made easy by their status as menbut because people like Davis, Kathleen Cleaver, and Elaine Brown are alive. Very much alive. Many of us always look to our radical Black ancestors and Black elders to decide what to do in times like these. And here are these women, ancestors in the flesh.

Elders who still walk among us. Who continue to produce important pieces of thought that aid in the struggle for Black lives. And yet, people would rather defer to charlatans like McKesson and King. How is it that we are living in a moment when Angela Davis is very much alive and people are still listening to DeRay and Shaun King?

Angela Davis is still alive. She is still here. What a blessing. What a time to be alive as well. It truly is. And thereby makes it completely understandable that people would seek to combat this attempted erasure and not-so-subtle attempt to render these elders invisible by, well, deifying them.

And elevating them to similar celebrity status. Which, while well-intentioned, is simply not the way to go. Mainly because deification strips people but particularly Black people, and especially Black women of our humanity and opens the door for hyper-scrutiny. And a proud one too. One messianic figure. That no forward movement would have been made toward liberation in these instances without participation and collaboration between many and different Black people.

Between Black people with different politics. And between Black people with completely different ideas about how to tackle the sort of injustices facing all Black people. Otherwise, we risk the movement being derailed by the corrupting power of not only celebrity… but also? Your support is essential and your generosity is why Wear Your Voice keeps going! You are a part of the resistance that is needed—uplifting Black and brown feminists through your pledges is the direct community support that allows us to make more space for marginalized voices.

This platform is our way of making necessary and positive change, and together we can keep growing.
