Angela Davis: An Autobiography

This book is about Angela Davis
"Angela Davis: An Autobiography" is a profound and inspiring account that traces the life of one of the most iconic figures in the fight for civil rights across multiple domains, including racial justice, gender equality, criminal justice reform, and indigenous rights. Reintroduced with a compelling new foreword by Angela Davis herself, this edition breathes new life into her narrative, making it as relevant today as it was at its initial release in 1974. Davis's story unfolds from her early experiences in Birmingham, Alabama, to her influential roles in major social movements, capturing her involvement with the U.S. Communist Party, the Black Panther Party, and beyond. Her journey from being a philosophy professor at UCLA to landing on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list is narrated with a blend of warmth, humor, and unyielding conviction. Ideal for college students who are keen on understanding the complexities of activism through the lens of a legendary fighter, this autobiography not only recounts history but also encourages a deeper engagement with the pressing social justice issues of today. Released on May 2, 2023, this book is a must-read for anyone passionate about the history and future of social justice movements.
