Show Notes:

Angela Davis

On this week's episode of Progressive Voices, Angela Davis, esteemed activist, scholar, and educator, gives a free lecture at Liuna Station in Hamilton, Ontario.

"Through activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world.  Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement."
