TUCP Direction is proud to present a lecture by professor Angela Davis.
Through her activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice.
Angela Davis is the author of nine books and has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted List." Angela Davis is a founding member of Critical Resistance, a national organization dedicated to the dismantling of the prison industrial complex.
Please join TUCP, the Freshman Reading Project, the Anna Julia Cooper Project and the Office for Multicultural Affairs for this free event featuring Angela Davis speaking about activism, feminism, and more. Q&A to follow.
