Location:  Knobloch Campus Center DFPH-Duke Family Performance Hall

TICKETS FOR THIS LECTURE ARE SOLD OUT (INCLUDING STANDING ROOM) 

Davidson College invites the public to a talk on Tuesday, Feb. 12 by noted political activist and academic Angela Davis.

Davis will deliver Davidson’s annual Wearn Lecture on the subject “Political Activism and Protest from the 1960s to the Age of Obama.”

Through her activism and scholarship, Davis has been deeply involved in the quest for economic, racial and gender justice. In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of communities affected by poverty and racial discrimination.

Davis taught for the last 15 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. 

The talk begins at 8 p.m. in Duke Family Performance Hall. Tickets are free but required. For more information on her talk, call 704-894-2284.
