Angela Davis has been a political activist at the cutting edge of the Black Liberation, feminist, queer, and prison-abolitionist movements for more than fifty years. Angela Davis: An Autobiography, first published and edited by Toni Morrison in 1974, is a powerful and commanding account of her early years in these struggles. Davis describes her journey from a childhood on Dynamite Hill in Birmingham, Alabama, to one of the most significant political trials of the century: from her political activity in a New York high school to her work with the US Communist Party, the Black Panther Party, and the Soledad Brothers; and from the faculty of the philosophy department at the University of California at Los Angeles to the FBI’s list of the “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.” Read by Angela Davis herself, this autobiography, told with warmth, brilliance, humor, and conviction, is a classic account of a life in struggle, with echoes in our own time.

Story

A must read

A staunchly committed revolutionary figure of her time, Davis proves she’s also a very good writer. Top that off with a surprisingly appropriate narration (by herself, admittedly, not an actor) and you have the makings of a book you’ll listen to several times. She projects her thinking beyond the moment and into the future of what seems to continue to be a maze with no exit. Writing in 1974, there was ahead generations of possible change, but with a country that is presently wallowing still in racism and bigotry, Davis’s hopes are still in the future. The events she writes about are in the past, but all of us could be enlightened by her wisdom and courage. Highly recommended.
