I received an email from my Israeli-American friend Louis Richter with the recent news that former UC Santa Cruz Professor Angela Davis was the official speaker at the University of California at Santa Cruz for Martin Luther King’s Holiday commemoration of what would have been his 86th birthday. The title of her speech was “Racism, Militarism, Poverty: From Ferguson to Palestine.” It was the keynote address of their 31st annual convocation on MLK’s birthday. The email contained an extended letter of protest from more than twenty organizations speaking as one who support Israel and were outraged that this “known anti-Zionist” who “supported boycotts against Israel” would be sponsored by the university—especially in connection with Rev.
