Angela Davis

WHEN: 7 p.m., Tuesday Feb. 2

WHAT: Angela Davis, a leading thinker on issues of racial politics and criminal justice reform, will visit Johns Hopkins University as part of the JHU Forums on Race in America. The event is free, but tickets are sold out.

Davis is an activist and scholar who has spent four decades working for racial and economic equality. She was a visible figure in the black political movements of the 1970s and has since conducted extensive research on issues related to race, gender, and criminal justice.
