Angela Davis - 2nd Term
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. She is the author of eleven books, including Abolition.Feminism.Now, co-authored with Gina Dent, Erica Meiners, and Beth Richie, and a new edition of her Autobiography. Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without carceral systems and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement.
