A few weeks ago, President Barack Obama and the first lady Michelle Obama met with civil rights leader, Angela Davis, in the Oval Office to discuss the state of African-American lives and justice.
During the discussion, the president reminded Davis that he is the first African-Americans president and she told him, “I’m sure you know you’re not the first black president.”
During the conversation, Davis told the president that she was born in the South and the nation was her heritage, and that “she was born to a slave owner.”
Davis then quoted from the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which called for civil rights for people of color.
“She said, ‘When I read that in 1964, I said, I don’t want to read that again.
I want to be a part of history,'” Obama recalled.
“I just thought it was so important.
And she said, that was the greatest thing she could say.
I said to her, ‘Well, I didn’t get the chance to do that.’
I think it’s important for you to know that.
That’s something I will always remember.
I thought that was a very meaningful moment.”
