Themis: The Guardian of Divine Law and Order:


In Greek mythology, Themis, escorted by The Three Fates, arrived in a golden chariot for her wedding to Zeus, becoming his second wife.

Her activism and dedication to social justice were nurtured from an early age, as she witnessed and experienced profound social injustices. Davis's upbringing, with an intellectual mother and during the civil rights movement, laid the foundation for her unwavering commitment to challenging systemic oppression.
