Lecture: Angela Davis
Date: January 17th, 2013 Time: 12:30 PM
Location: Black Box Theatre (click for map)
As part of the community's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration feminist and writer Angela Davis speaks on campus. Through her activism and scholarship over the last decades, 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. Davis has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In recent years 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.
Davis speaks again 7 p.m. tonight at Lynnwood Convention Center at the City of Lynnwood's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration.
