You folks know I’ve been singing the praises of the documentary FREE ANGELA for about a year now! My friend Sidra Smith came aboard Shola Lynch’s directorial masterpiece as producer – credited with bringing Jada Pinkett Smith; Will Smith; and Jay Z on board to fund and Executive Produce the completion and release of this pivotal story: http://thelifeofriley.squarespace.com/rilys-blog/2013/4/4/freedom-and-convergence.html. Well, it’s OSCAR time! So, I was uber-excited that Sidra and publicist extraordinaire Peggy Siegal invited me to sit right next to Angela Davis and a host of other tastemakers as well as members of the National Board of Review (www.nationalboardofreview.org) for a delicious, private luncheon at Brasserie Ruhlmann at Rockefeller Plaza. AND WHAT A CELEBRATION it was! I’m sending up a special prayer for the nomination of “Free Angela and All Political Prisoners: A Film by Shola Lynch”. Invited guests included New York members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Documentary voting committee in addition to major press, bloggers, corporate partners and hi-profile celebrities. Also in the house: MISS VIVICA A. FOX; Vivica’s rep, my friend BJ COLEMAN; Yaya DaCosta (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and “America’s Next Top Model”). She attended with her husband Joshua Bee Alafia and her new baby in tow; Geoffrey Fletcher; Mr. Roger Friedman (“Showbiz 411”); Thelma Golden (“Studio Museum of Harlem”); NY Post Page Six’s Ian Mohr; and a host of others. FREE ANGELA tells the dramatic story of how a young philosophy professor's social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt of a judge that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and a nation wondering, as Newsweek magazine asks: what would prompt Angela Davis, "the daughter of the black bourgeoisie, to take a desperate turn to terrorism?" For the 40th anniversary of her acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Angela Davis and all the main characters recount the politics and actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom as a political prisoner. At its core, the story wrestles with the meaning of political freedom in a democracy negotiated between the people and its government, The sixties and seventies were all about citizens challenging authority, or as the slogan went - "Power to the People! Strong, attractive and engaging, Angela Davis is one such person who becomes a symbol at the center of this still relevant power struggle.
