Angela Y. Davis has been a freedom fighter, and advocate for intersectional, abolitionist feminism for over fifty years. Her pioneering work has influenced a generation of scholars, activists, and advocates in countless struggles for justice.

In 2020, Angela Davis was named one of TIME‘s 100 Most Influential People, with a profile written by Ibram X. Kendi, and named TIME‘s “Woman of the Year” for 1971 in their “100 Women of the Year” edition, which covered the 100 years that began with women’s suffrage in 1920.

In 2020, T Magazine highlighted Angela Davis in its “The Greats” issue, celebrating “five talents who, in mastering their crafts, have changed their fields — and the culture at large.”

An acknowledged classic, Davis’s autobiography has until now had limited trade distribution, and is ready to be encountered for the first time by a new generation of readers who have recently discovered Davis’s work in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement, but don’t know her rootedness in earlier movements.
