Description:

​Angela Davis, Democracy and Civil Engagement, 7 p.m., OUC Ballroom


Through her activism and scholarship over the last decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in our nation's quest for social justice.  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.  Her teaching career has taken her to San Francisco State University, Mills College, and University of California- Berkeley.  She also has taught at UCLA, Vassar, the Claremont Colleges, and Stanford University.  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 of Feminist Studies. Davis has written eight books and has lectured throughout the world. 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 early70s as a person who spent 18 months in jail and on trial, after at one time being placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted List.”
