Will and Jada Pinkett Smith looked extra fabulous like the black Ken & Barbie as they walked to The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem for last night's premiere of Free Angela And All Political Prisoners.

Jada and Will served as executive producers of the film which chronicles the life of college professor Angela Davis, whose social activism and affiliation with both the Communist Party and the Black Panthers led to her being implicated in a botched kidnapping attempt that left four dead.  

The tragic event landed her on the FBI's 10 most wanted list and resulted in one of the most sensational trials of the early 70s.  Angela was eventually acquitted of all charges and went on to continue her work as a social activist.

While discussing the film's themes of civil rights and liberation, Jada was asked about Magic Johnson and his son EJ and how she'd respond if one of her children were gay. She said, "I would support [them]. For me, I just want my kids to be happy. As long as they're happy... As long as they're living the lives that fulfill them, I'm good."

Such a gorgeous dress and color for her.  And hot shoes as usual.
