Angela Davis & Robin Levi


Angela Davis & Robin Levi

For more than four decades Angela Davis has been one of the most influential activists and scholars involved in the social justice movement. Her recent work has focused on incarceration and the criminalization of communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. Her recent books are Abolition Democracy: Beyond Prisons, Torture, and Empire and Are Prisons Obsolete? Robin Levi is the human rights director at Justice Now. While a staff attorney at the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, she documented sexual abuse of women in U.S. state prisons. She has recently co-edited a book of essays by prisoners called Inside This Place, Not of It: Narratives from Women’s Prisons. A book signing will follow the conversation.
