Angela Davis, the fourth speaker in the JHU Forums on Race in America series, has spent four decades working for racial and economic equality. She was a prominent figure in the black political movements of the 1970s and has since conducted extensive research on issues related to race, gender, and criminal justice. She will speak about abolitionist movements in the 21st century, including activism focused on prisons, the war on drugs, violence, equality, race, and social disparity.

Following her presentation, Davis will participate in a question and answer session with the Shriver Hall audience.

The JHU Forums on Race in America series was developed to facilitate important conversations on Johns Hopkins campuses about racial inequality and the deep divisions that exist in our society.
