“This Is an Era Defined by the Rise of Women” - 11th Annual Nicos Poulantzas Memorial Lecture with Angela Davis

Angelina Giannopoulou Transform! Europe
Angela Davis’s feminism was born through Marxism, and through theory and collective struggles as well. These two steps opened the road for a feminism that includes poor and black women, standing out against mainstream white, bourgeois feminism. It is not even possible to speak of a white feminism anymore, not only in the USA, but also in Europe. Europe is no longer a white continent.

Review: The House on Coco Road - A New View of Grenada’s Revolution

Joshua Jelly-Schapiro New York Review of Books
Food, housing, health—is what the revolution fought for. A drowsy old sugar island whose slaves’ descendants were now mostly farmers and fisher-folk became vibrant with people crowding revolutionary rallies to dance and chant slogans that sounded like reggae songs and were affixed to brightly colored signs around the island: “Forward Ever, Backward Never”; “It takes a revolution, to make a solution”; “Not a second, without the people.”

Angela Davis Talks Black Liberation, History and the Contemporary Vision

Sheryl Huggins Salomon, Ebony.com Huffington Post
Ebony interviews Angela Davis, fifty years after the founding of the Black Panther Party. Young people are searching for forums through which they can express an urgent need for radical change. They are questioning the assumption that leadership has to be individual or that leadership has to be male. They are working with new collective models of leadership. One has seen the rise of many women in leadership.

The Phenomenal Life and Legacy of Leon Letwin

Angela Davis Portside
[M]inority candidates will, with some frequency, come with unconventional political backgrounds and views as judged from majority perspectives. Regentally imposed political tests which assault the academic freedom of all will fall upon such candidates with unusual severity. (Leon Letwin's letter in defense of Angela Davis in 1969, relevant today as we defend faculty members such as Steven Salaita.)
