Description

Inspired bya private archive and including contemporary work by artists who acknowledge the continued relevance of Angela Davis’s experience and politics, the essays, interviews, and images in this book provide a compelling and layered narrative of her journey through the junctures of race, gender, economic and political policy.

Beginning with the arrest, trial, and acquittal of Davis, 1970-72, and continuing through her world tour to thank those who joined in demanding her release and her influential career as a public intellectual, the book examines fifty years of history in light of the current political moment. Profusely illustrated with materials found in the archive (press coverage, photographs, court sketches, videos, music, writings, correspondence, and Davis’s political writings), the book includes an interview with Angela Davis and Lisbet Tellefsen, the archivist who collected these materials, as well as essays that ouch on visibililty and invisibility, history, memory, and the iconography of black radical feminism.
