The Abyssinian Baptist Church Ministry of Christian Social Concern Presents: A Conversation with Angela Davis

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 At The Abyssinian Baptist Church, 132 Odell Clark Place. New York, New York 10030, 6:30 - 8:30 PM. Doors Open: 5:30 PM. 

Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement.

Come hear Angela Davis at The Abyssinian Baptist Church: In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination.  She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.”  She also has conducted extensive research on numerous issues related to race, gender and imprisonment. 

She will be interviewed by author and journalist Les Payne.
