An Evening with Angela Y. Davis
Talks | Literary

In conversation with Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore
In association with Haymarket Books
With collaboration from The New York Review of Books

 
Part of Unbound

Join Angela Y. Davis for an intimate conversation focused on the new edition of her classic memoir—now featuring a major new introduction. A political activist at the cutting edge of the Black Liberation, feminist, queer, and prison abolitionist movements, Davis gives a powerful and commanding account of her early years in struggle in An Autobiography. First published and edited by Toni Morrison in 1974, it describes her journey from a childhood in Birmingham, Alabama, to one of the most significant political trials of the century, to her work for abolitionist feminism today.

Davis will be in conversation with award-winning scholar and public intellectual Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.
