One evening, after lock-up, a loud question broke the silence. It came from a sister who was reading a book I had lent her.
"Angela, what does 'imperialism' mean?"
I called out, "The ruling class of one country conquers the people of another in order to rob them of their land, their resources, and to exploit their labor."
Another voice shouted, "You mean treating people in other countries the way Black people are treated here?"
