The Architects of Woke series takes aim at far-left post-modernist and Marxist thinkers and activists responsible for the spread of identity politics from college campuses to society at large.
The ninth episode, Angela Davis & the Birth of “Defund the Police”, covers the influence of radical communist activist Angela Davis. A major influence on the founders of Black Lives Matter, Davis is the progenitor of the popular left-wing movement to “defund the police.” More than defund, Davis wants to fully abolish the police. What should take its place? She’s not so clear . . .
