Angela Davis is the author of eight books and has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America.

She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI's 'Ten Most Wanted List.' She has also conducted extensive research on numerous issues related to race, gender and imprisonment.
