Levana’s Feminist Reading Group Reads “Angela Davis: An Autobiography”

30 Jan

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.

Evebt poster for 'Levana Feminist Reading Group Reads Angela Davis An Autobiography'

“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.
