Don't miss the opportunity to hear noted activist, scholar, educator, and author Angela Davis discuss her life, career, and social justice issues on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018. She will appear in Lincoln Theater from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. It also will be streamed live at www.hartford.edu/view.

Davis’s appearance is sponsored by the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz in the University’s The Hartt School in collaboration with the department of Africana Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences and Hillyer College.

Davis is an icon of black politics and social activism in the United States dating back to the 1960s when she was a leader of the Communist Party USA and had close ties with the Black Panther Party. Through her activism and scholarship over ensuing decades, she has been involved in many movements for social justice around the world. In recent years, she has focused on the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination.
