The Levana Gender Advocacy Centre’s feminist reading group meets once a month to discuss a different text and the book we are reading this month (for Black History Month!) is Angela Davis: An Autobiography by none other than Angela Davis.
“First published in 1974, when Angela Davis was 28, this is as fine a memoir of the 60s and 70s as you’ll find. More than that, its a journey from a childhood on Dynamite Hill in Birmingham, Alabama to one of the most significant political trials of the 20th century; from political activity in a New York high school to the Soledad brothers; from the faculty of the Philosophy Dept. at UCLA to the FBI’s list of the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. A powerful and commanding story told with warmth, brilliance, humor, and conviction.”
The book is available for purchase at Levana’s library (come visit us in the Grey House!) or borrow a copy for free. Also available at Stauffer Library.
