Holocaust group sought reconsideration of Angela Davis honor

An Alabama civil rights organization withdrew a planned human rights award from political activist Angela Davis after a group that educates Alabamians about the Holocaust asked them to reconsider the honor.

 

The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center wrote to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute on January 2 expressing "concern and disappointment" about the plan to honor Davis with an award named for minister and civil rights pioneer Fred L. Shuttlesworth. The letter urged the institute to "reconsider your decision."
