Through her activism, writings, and scholarship, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world, and her work emphasizes the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. She draws upon her own experiences in the early 1970s as a person who spent 18 months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted List." Angela Davis is a founding member of Critical Resistance, a national organization dedicated to the dismantling of the prison industrial complex. She continues to speak about social problems associated with incarceration, and the generalized criminalization of communities most affected by poverty and racial discrimination.
