Just one day after Beyonce took over HBO with her documentary Life is But a Dream, Jada Pinkett Smith shut down the Pan African Film Festival with her documentary Free Angela & All Political Prisoners.
HipHollywood caught up with Pinkett, who executive produced the film along with her hubby Will Smith and Jay-Z, to talk about Davis’ legacy and the importance of empowering other women.
“We think we know her story, but we don’t. She’s an American icon as far as history goes,” Jada told us on the red carpet.
When asked what she wants young girls to take from the film, Angela Davis told us, ”I want them to feel empowered, I want them to feel that they can do whatever they set out to do especially if they get involved in collectives and communities of struggle.”
