An Audience with Angela Davis
The writer and activist gives a keynote address, in a streamed conversation with Brett St Louis presented in partnership with the Stuart Hall Foundation.
From the civil rights movement of the 1960s to the present, Angela Davis has been a pivotal figure in the urgent struggles of our times.
Through her scholarship and organising work, Davis has been a witness to the shifting frontiers of social justice, and is one of the world’s foremost thinkers on women, race and class.
During a global pandemic, and in the light of the Black Lives Matter movement and the upcoming US election, Davis gives a keynote address that considers our place in history.
And in conversation with academic Brett St Louis, Davis discusses the political scene in the US heading into the upcoming election and the ongoing struggle for economic, racial and gender justice.
Angela Davis is the author of many books, including Angela Davis: An Autobiography; Women, Race, and Class; and Blues Legacies and Black Feminism: Gertrude ‘Ma’ Rainey, Bessie Smith, and Billie Holiday. She is a patron of the Stuart Hall Foundation.
Inspired by the life and work of Professor Stuart Hall, the Stuart Hall Foundation is committed to public education, addressing urgent questions of race and inequality in culture and society.
Brett St Louis is senior lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is the author of CLR James’ Critique of Modernity: Race, Politics and Poetics and is currently completing a book on racial eliminativism.
This event is pre-recorded exclusively for the Southbank Centre.
