2015 Annual Human Rights Lecture Event on Human Rights, Racism, and the Police State at San José State University on Thursday April 16th, 2015. This event will embody the forefront of contemporary human and civil rights struggles in the U.S., and serve as an inspiration to our students, faculty, and community.
The point of this year’s event is to serve the ongoing resistance movements confronting mass incarceration and police violence “from Ferguson to Geneva.” Additionally, we would like to highlight the role of young women of color at the forefront of street resistance, community organizing, and independent journalism/advocacy.
Our Keynote lecture will be by Angela Davis. Angela Davis is an activist, writer, and Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. She is the author of nine books, the most recent of which is entitled The Meaning of Freedom. Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement.
DOORS OPEN AT 6: 30pm
