He is followed by Michael Snyder, the chair of Accent '74, and Linda Holliman of the Institute of Black Culture who introduced Angela Davis. Angela Davis's address focused on her experiences as a black revolutionary, her incarceration and trial, her thoughts about the war in Vietnam, her anger at multinational corporations, and the struggle against Portuguese colonialism in Africa.
