Tugg and Lionsgate-owned Codeblack Films will partner on the release of Free Angela And All Political Prisoners.

The documentary about the Civil Rights activist and University Of California philosophy professor who rose to prominence in the 1960s will open in select cities at AMC Theatres on Apr 5 and is available through Tugg for special theatrical engagements nationwide.

“We’re incredibly excited to empower individuals and groups across the country to host their own screenings of this gripping and inspirational film,” said Tugg co-founders Nicolas Gonda and Pablo Gonzalez.

Free Angela is a perfect film for local communities to rally around and participate in a conversation about social justice that is still relevant today.”

“Much like Angela Davis used her voice and the voices of others for change, our initiative with Tugg will allow individuals the ability to come together and share a common experience,” said Codeblack CEO Jeff Clanagan.

Free Angela And All Political Prisoners premiered at Toronto 2012.
