Open VISIONS Forum Freedom: Seeking Justice In America An Evening With Dr. Angela Davis

Quick Center For The Arts
2/1/18
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
quickcenter.fairfield.edu/

In conjunction with the University’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration, we are honored to present Dr. Angela Davis, distinguished professor emerita at the University of California. As one of the most iconic faces of black politics and social activism beginning in the 1960s, she gained international recognition in combating all forms of oppression. Her work as an educator, author, human rights activist, and public intellectual articulates a vision of building communities for economic, racial, and gender equality. She has worked tirelessly creating alliances across racial lines and confronting institutional injustices of the “prison industrial complex.” She will share with us her journey after being placed on the FBI’s ‘Ten Most Wanted List’ for a crime she did not commit connected to the Soledad Prison Three. After serving 18 months in jail and on trial, she conducted extensive research on the interplay of race, gender, and imprisonment. Her testimony will inspire our University community towards making our nation and world more aware of the long struggle – past, present, and future – ensuring that freedom results in democratic institutions founded on social justice.
