Angela Davis, a well-known activist and professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, will speak on “Collective Accountability and Responsibility.” “An Evening with Angela Davis” is part of the college’s Voices of Color Lecture Series created to recognize Hamilton’s commitment to cultural diversity. Each year, the series sponsors a lecture by an influential leader of color.
Davis, who previously spoke at Hamilton as part of the same series in 2016, took part in the College’s Junior Year in France program during the 1963-64 academic year.
For those who would like to attend this event via Zoom, registration is required.
Among past Voices of Color speakers are Yusef Salaam, one of the “Exonerated Five;” Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers (UFW); renowned dance icon Judith Jamison, a former principal dancer with the Alvin Ailey Company; and Dr. Cornel West, a renowned academic and social justice advocate who currently teaches at Union Theological Seminar. This year’s series is sponsored by the College’s Black Latinx Student Union and Center for Intersectional Feminism in addition to the Voices of Color Lecture Series.
