Don’t miss a free screening of the highly anticipated documentary Free Angela Davis & All Political Prisoners at the University of Chicago tonight at 6pm.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring  Joy James, Professor of Humanities & Social Science at Williams College, Mariame Kaba, Founding Director of Project NIA, and attorney Standish Willis.

From IMDB:

A documentary that chronicles the life of young college professor Angela Davis, and how her social activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.

Nearly forty years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom.

The screening will take place at the Logan Center Performance Hall at 915, East 60th Street in Chicago. Click here for the Facebook event page.

This event is a collaboration of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality’s Feminist Theory Project, and part of a year-long series on the theory and praxis of Angela Y. Davis. The series will culminate in a major lecture by Professor Davis at the University of Chicago in May, 2013.
