This course will explore the major writings of Angela Davis. We will also be reading other black women intellectuals and activists in relation to Davis’s work. The focus will not only be on Davis’s thought but the way in which her work fits into a broader lineage of black women intellectuals. Major themes to be explored will include the intersectionality of race, gender, and class in the formation of social relations; the prison abolition movement; and, the role of women of color in social justice movements.
