The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute's board of directors had chosen Angela Davis to receive its Fred Shuttlesworth Human Rights Award at its annual gala next month.

But the institute decided to withdraw the award and cancel the annual gala at which Davis, a Birmingham native, would have been honored.

The decision came after "supporters and other concerned individuals and organizations, both inside and outside of our local community, began to make requests that we reconsider our decision," the institute's board said in a statement.
