Angela Davis: 150 Years Later – Abolition in the 21st Century
March 19, 2013 at 16:58 pm
World-renowned speaker, scholar and activist Angela Davis is coming to Hamilton on Wednesday, March 27th from 6:30 - 8:30pm (doors open at 6pm) at Liuna Station (360 James St. N.) The MSU is collaborating with the McMaster Seminar on Higher Education to arrange free buses to transport students to her public lecture and book signing at Liuna Station (360 James St. N.), located in the North End of Hamilton's Downtown #Angela2013 @McMasterSeminar
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.
