Join us as we welcome the legendary activist and scholar Angela Davis to Spokane for a talk on race in America followed by moderated questions. 

Dr. Davis has had a distinguished career as a professor at UC-Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford, and elsewhere.  She spent fifteen years at Cal-Santa Cruz, where she is now Distinguished Professor Emerita of history of consciousness and feminist studies.

Much of Dr. Davis’s work draws upon her own life: she was born in Birmingham, growing up in the Jim Crow South.  Early in career as a scholar, she faced calls from Governor Ronald Reagan for her firing.  Later, as an activist, she would be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List.  Dr. Davis would endure 18 months in jail becoming an international rallying point for the movement on behalf of political prisoners.  These experiences have informed much of her work against the prison-industrial-complex and on behalf of prisoners around the world.

Davis Event Ticket Registration:
Due to popular demand, all tickets have been distributed.

A video recording of Dr. Davis’s talk will be available at www.gonzaga.edu/publichumanities within 2 weeks after the event.
