Angela Davis -- Feminist Change: A New Era
A professor emerita at the University of California-Santa Cruz, Davis has prodded America's social conscience for nearly 40 years. Her presentation was "Feminist Change: A New Era."
Davis burst onto the scene in 1970 when she was the subject of a nationwide dragnet for her alleged role in a shootout at the Marin County Hall of Justice near San Francisco. A Black Panther Party supporter and Communist Party USA member, Davis was arrested, tried and acquitted in 1972.
The 65-year-old is an advocate for feminist causes, racial equality, and the abolition of prisons and the death penalty.
