Angela Davis on Running from the FBI, Lessons from Prison and How Aretha Franklin Got Her Free

For more than four decades, Angela Davis has been one of most influential activists and intellectuals in the United States. An icon of the black liberation movement, Davis’s work around issues of gender, race, class and prisons has influenced critical thought and social movements across several generations.

She is a leading advocate for prison abolition, a position informed by her own experience as a prisoner and fugitive on the FBI‘s top 10 most wanted list more than 40 years ago. Once caught, she faced the death penalty in California. After being acquitted, she has spent her life fighting to change the criminal justice system. Just before the midterm elections, Angela Davis sat down with Amy Goodman in Washington, D.C., at Busboys and Poets to tell her life story.
