MLK Celebration featuring Angela Davis

Through her activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply

importance of building communities with economic, racial, and gender justice.
Professor Davis' teaching career has taken her to San Francisco State University,
Mills College, and UC Berkeley. Most recently she spent 15 years at the University
of California Santa Cruz where she is now Distinguished Professor Emerita of Feminist
Davis is the author of nine books and has lectured throughout the United States as
well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. She also has conducted
extensive research on numerous issues related to race, gender and imprisonment.
The Jan. 31 date wraps up a month that celebrates Dr. King's birthday on the 16th,
