March 2, U.C. Berkeley, On Revolution: A Conversation Between Grace Lee Boggs and Angela Davis
Friday, March 2, 4 pm to 6 pm
at Pauley Ballroom, University of California, Berkeley
For the first time in history, iconic activists Grace Lee Boggs and Angela Davis will share the stage to discuss their motivation for continuing their work and activism, presenting their ideas of social justice, healing and moving activism beyond the academy.
Angela Davis is an internationally renowned activist, scholar, author and educator. She has authored Abolition Democracy: Beyond Prisons, Torture, and Empire; Women, Race, and Class; and Angela Davis, An Autobiography. In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. She is a retired professor in the department of the History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Sample screening of documentary in progress, “American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs” by filmmaker Grace Lee.
Sponsored by the Women of Color Initiative at the UC Berkeley Graduate Assembly, in conjunction with the 27th Annual Empowering Women of Color Conference.
Admission free and open to the general public.
