When Angela Davis arrived in France in the early 1960s, she quickly learned that the country was not the refuge from Jim Crow racism that the young college student imagined it would be. But France nevertheless had an important impact on her thinking and development, as the turbulent decolonization fights of the decade "nourished her sense of politics."
