5826089700001zIn the volume “Freedom is a Constant Struggle,” published in October 2016, noted activist and scholar Angela Davis explores the connections and commonalities of liberation struggles against oppression and exploitation worldwide.

The Black Women’s Movement/Black Feminism, intersectional contexts of ‘race,’ class, and gender, capitalist individualism, the Prison Abolition Movement, and police violence play a particular role.

“She writes against the world’s largest, record-profit ‘security’ corporation, G4S, as well as about cross-national and cross-border solidarity for the resistance struggles of our time. From the U.S. Black Freedom Movement to the South African anti-apartheid movement: Davis reviews significant contemporary liberation movements, takes a close look at their commonalities, and elaborates their relevance to current movements against state violence-from Ferguson to Palestine. Davis makes the case for building a world-wide movement to liberate humanity and reminds us that achieving freedom involves a long, permanent, collective struggle.” Book description of the publisher
