Civil rights leader Angela Davis has responded to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute’s decision to revoke a human rights award in her honor over her activism for Palestinian rights and criticism of Israel. Davis says she was “stunned” by the move. In a statement, she responded, “The rescinding of this invitation and the cancellation of the event where I was scheduled to speak was not primarily an attack against me but rather against the very spirit of the indivisibility of justice.” Davis will instead appear at an alternative event in Birmingham in her honor.
