Angela Yvonne Davis (born January 26, 1944) is an American political activist, academic, and author.She emerged as a prominent counterculture activist and radical in the 1960s as a leader of the Communist Party USA, and had close relations with the Black Panther Party through her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement.Davis's membership in the CPUSA led California Governor Ronald Reagan in 1969 to attempt to have her barred from teaching at any university in the State of California.She supported the governments of the Soviet Bloc for several decades.The first fortnight we visited smaller islands, Mayreau, Bequaia, Guadaloupe as well as St Maarten, Antigua, Martinique, Tortola, and Tobago.The islands were everything you expect of the Caribbean, white sand, palm trees, clear blue seas, colour, steel bands and happy people.Fessler deftly describes the impossible position in which these women found themselves: as a sexual revolution heated up in the postwar years, birth control was tightly restricted, and abortion proved prohibitively expensive or life endangering.
The majority of the women Fessler interviewed have never spoken of their experiences, and most have been haunted by grief and shame their entire adult lives.
During the 1980s, she was twice a candidate for Vice President on the CPUSA ticket, but in 1991 left the party. Her family lived in the "Dynamite Hill" neighborhood, which was marked in the 1950s by the bombings of houses of middle-class blacks who had moved into the area, in an attempt to intimidate them and drive them out.
Davis occasionally spent time on her uncle's farm and with friends in New York City. Tuggle School, a segregated black elementary school; later she attended Parker Annex, a middle-school branch of Parker High School in Birmingham.

In this deeply moving work, Ann Fessler brings to light the lives of hundreds of thousands of young single American women forced to give up their newborn children in the years following World War II and before tells a story not of wild and carefree sexual liberation, but rather of a devastating double standard that has had punishing long-term effects on these women and on the children they gave up for adoption.
