Event description

The School of Law, Birkbeck, University of London warmly invites you to the 2013/2014 Annual Law Lecture:

Freedom is a Constant Struggle: Closures and Continuities by Angela Davis with a response from Michael Mansfield QC.

Angela Davis is an activist, writer and Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Her work as an educator both at the university level and in the larger public sphere has emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial and gender justice. In recent years she has focused on 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 draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.” Her recent books include Abolition Democracy and Are Prisons Obsolete? about the abolition of the prison industrial complex; a new edition of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass; and a collection of essays entitled The Meaning of Freedom.
