Through her activism and scholarship over many decades, Distinguished Professor Emerita of the History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world. Her work as an educator—both at the university level and in the larger public sphere—has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial and gender justice.

Dr. Kimberly Bain '14, the John Holmes Assistant Professor in the Humanities and Neubauer Faculty Fellow at Tufts University, will moderate the discussion. Professor Bain's most pressing intellectual interests have consolidated around questions of the history, theory, and philosophy of diaspora, race, gender, postcolonialism, enslavement, flesh, environmental racism, resistance, embodiment, and subjection and subjecthood.

These events are open to the Amherst College community as part of Black Alumni Week.
