The Southern Committee to Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners was organized by civil rights activists, Communist Party organizers & one-time happily married couple, Michael Honey and Martha Allen - and comrades. Honey & Allen moved from Louisville to Memphis in 1970 and Honey worked as the Southern Regional Director for the National Committee Against Repressive Legislation. Although dozens of ad hoc committees and groups sprung up in support of Angela Davis, most were based in the northeast, west coast and large urban centers out west.
