Angela Davis presents her main lecture on “Feminism, Abolition and Radical Reconstruction in the 21st Century”

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. The author of nine books, Professor Davis’ teaching career has taken her to San Francisco State University, Mills College, and UC Berkeley. She also has taught at UCLA, Vassar, the Claremont Colleges, and Stanford University. Mostly recently she spent fifteen years at the University of California Santa Cruz where she is now Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness – an interdisciplinary Ph.D program – and of Feminist Studies.

Written and directed by the celebrated filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako and co-executive produced by Danny Glover (who also provides a cameo in the film) this critically acclaimed political drama offers a unique look into contemporary Africa.
Melé is a bar singer, her husband Chaka is out of work and the couple is on the verge
of breaking up. In the courtyard of the house they share with other families, a trial
court has been set up. African civil society spokesmen have taken proceedings against the World Bank and the IMF whom they blame for Africa’s woes. Amidst the pleas and the testimonies, life goes on in the courtyard.

The film is a first-hand account of the events that thrust Angela Davis into the national spotlight from a young college professor to a fugitive on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.
