Angela Davis has spent more than 50 years at the forefront of Black Liberation, Feminist, Queer, and prison abolitionist movements. Her seminal book, Angela Davis: An Autobiography, originally published in 1974 and edited by Toni Morrison, captures Davis’s formative years as a human rights activist and the journey that led her to become one of the most respected and recognized political activists of her generation.

Dr. Davis’s newest book, co-written alongside Gina Dent, Erica R. Meiners and Beth E. Richie, Abolition. Feminism. Now., deftly links together the history of abolitionist movements and the important role that Queer, anti-capitalist, and Women of Colour continue to play in vibrant community-based organizing.

Dr. Angela Y. Davis discusses her life-long dedication to activism and resistance with host Sandy Hudson.
