Angela Davis needs no introduction. The former Communist Party USA leader is one of her generation’s most influential activists and scholars, and her work remains crucially relevant today. On Thursday, February 18, the historic Marcus Books will host Davis at the First Congregational Church of Oakland (2501 Harrison St.) for a conversation about Freedom Is a Constant Struggle, a recently released collection of Davis’ essays, interviews, and speeches that reflect on the importance of Black feminism, intersectionality, and prison abolition. Davis will be joined in conversation with Johanna Fernandez, a scholar in Black and Latino studies who edited Writing on the Wall, a collection of essays by Mumia Abu-Jamal, the famous former Black Panther and Philadelphia journalist who has been serving life in prison since 1981, but continues to publish sharp, revolutionary social critiques from behind bars.
