Through her activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to imagine a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st-century abolitionist movement.

Davis is Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness and of Feminist Studies at University of California Santa Cruz. Her most recent book is Abolition. Feminism. Now. (Haymarket Books, 2022).

Davis’s visit is in conjunction with the exhibition Angela Davis—Seize the Time, on view through June 15 at Rutgers’ Zimmerli Art Museum. The exhibition presents a compelling and layered narrative through archival materials and contemporary art to trace Davis’s journey from embattled college professor to subject of an unprecedented international effort to free an incarcerated Black woman to a preeminent voice on human rights and justice.

Please register for the event by February 25.
