Community Reads:  Freedom is a Constant Struggle, by Angela Davis.

“In these newly collected essays, interviews, and speeches, world-renowned activist and scholar Angela Davis illuminates the connections between struggles against state violence and oppression throughout history and around the world.

Reflecting on the importance of black feminism, intersectionality, and prison abolitionism for today's struggles, Davis discusses the legacies of previous liberation struggles, from the Black Freedom Movement to the South African anti-Apartheid movement. She highlights connections and analyzes today's struggles against state terror, from Ferguson to Palestine.

Facing a world of outrageous injustice, Davis challenges us to imagine and build the movement for human liberation. And in doing so, she reminds us that ‘Freedom is a constant struggle.’” (-book jacket)

We invite everyone on our shared campus to join in this academic year as we read Angela Davis’ book, Freedom is a Constant Struggle. Each quarter we’ll focus on different chapters and offer related materials to explore from a variety of disciplines and artistic forms of expression (poetry, art, fiction, film, etc.) based on themes.
