Racial activist and former fugitive Angela Davis has made the shocking discovery that she is a Mayflower descendant.
The show’s host and director of the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research at Harvard University made the discovery on Tuesday’s edition of “Finding Your Origins” on PBS.
“No, I can’t believe this,” Davis replied, laughing. “No, my ancestors did not come here on the Mayflower.”
The 79-year-old was flabbergasted after learning that she was descended from one of the 101 people who came to the colonies in 1620 aboard the Mayflower, William Brewster.
After the discovery, all the public figure could answer was, “Oof. That’s a little bit too much to deal with right now.”
The activist was then asked if she had ever “[thought] that [she] may have been descended from the people who laid the foundation of this country” to which she replied, “never.”
It gets better. She’s also descended from a slave owner. On her father’s side is a pilgrim. On her mother’s side is a slave owner. Looks like Angela Davis owes some reparations. https://t.co/JuPld361Kg

Now, the woke Marxist University of California professor is being called to pay reparations after discovering her ancestors were white puritans.
Davis is well known for her involvement with the Black Panther Party and with the Communist Party USA in the 1960’s and 1970’s. She played the role of being the gunowner that led to the deaths of four people in the armed invasion of a courtroom in California which had put her on the FBI’s Most Wanted List after she went on the run.
