Angela Davis

Through her activism and scholarship over the last decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in our nation’s quest for social justice. She spent the last 15 years at the University of California Santa Cruz where she is now Distinguished Professor Emerita of history of consciousness, an interdisciplinary Ph.D program, and feminist studies. Davis is the author of eight books and has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In recent years she has focused on social and racial discriminations and generalized criminalization in our nation’s prison system. She draws upon her own experiences in the early ‘70s as a person who spent 18 months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.” Her most  recent books are  Abolition Democracy and  Are Prisons Obsolete?.
