Deep in the Heart: Anti-U.S. social-justice fraud

1960's terror venerated on Texas campus

Political activist Angela Davis received a standing ovation before she spoke Wednesday night at Trinity University and was welcomed by San Antonians who supported her 40 years ago.

Davis, an educator and author committed to civil rights, delivered the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture at Laurie Auditorium, which was more than halfway toward its 2,700-person limit when people settled into their seats at 7 p.m. to hear her speak.

Throughout the 90-minute speech, titled “Social Justice, Feminism and MLK,” people were cheering and up on their feet clapping for Davis.

During the question-and-answer segment after Davis’ speech, a man who identified himself as the former secretary of the San Antonio Coalition to Free Angela Davis presented her with the original petition the group had circulated to help win Davis' release from jail in the early 1970s.

As he read off the names of prominent San Antonio citizens who had signed the petition, the crowd again rose to its feet to cheer. Davis was acquitted of conspiracy charges in connection with the murder of a California judge.
