Angela Davis Lecture
Feb 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

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 equality. 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.” In her talks, she urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement. Tickets are free and will become available on February 6 through the Duke Box Office (919-684-4444). They are required to attend the event. For more information, please visit the Duke Event, here.
