Angela Davis In Demand

Violent leftwing radicals are always welcome on campus
American political activist, author and professor Angela Davis will visit the University of Mary Washington on Wednesday, serving as the 2012 James Farmer Visiting Lecturer and Black History Month keynote speaker. The lecture will be held at 7 p.m. in George Washington Hall’s Dodd Auditorium.

Davis, a professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, is also known for spending 18 months in jail and going on trial for her suspected involvement in a crime in California in the early 1970s, for which the FBI placed her on the “Ten Most Wanted List.”

A jury found her not guilty of the crime, during which a California judge was murdered as a courtroom was taken over.
