Abolition Democracy

Program #DAVA011. Recorded in Oakland, CA on December 02, 2005.

Audio sample:
In American history the abolitionists fought to end slavery, lynching, and segregation. In our current times, one of the greatest challenges in the work to dismantle such repressive institutions is racism, morphed and hidden within all levels of governmental structures. The U.S. now has the largest prison population in the world. 70% of its more than 2 million inmates are poor people of color. As profits from the punishment industry increase, employment opportunities decrease and funding for education, housing, mental health, and drug treatment programs are drastically cut. As the race to the death penalty accelerates, images from Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib reveal the global impact of U.S. crime policy.

Speaker(s):

Angela Davis

Angela Davis is one of the iconic figures of this era. Acquitted on conspiracy charges in 1970, after one of the most famous trials in U.S. history, she went on to become an internationally renowned writer, scholar and lecturer. She’s the author of many books, including Women, Race and Class, Abolition Democracy, and The Meaning of Freedom
