Community as Rebellion: Surviving Academia as a Woman of Color w/ Angela Davis, Lorgia García Peña

Haymarket Books Live

Lorgia García Peña, Angela Y. Davis and Chandra Talpade Mohanty discuss freedom making in the academy for women scholars of color. Please note: This discussion was recorded on May 25, 2022. We are releasing it now because the discussion remains highly relevant and valuable. Join us for the launch of a Community as Rebellion: A Syllabus for Surviving Academia as a Woman of Color, a new book by Latinx Studies scholar Lorgia García Peña in conversation with Angela Y. Davis and Chandra Talpade Mohanty. Weaving personal narrative with political analysis, Community as Rebellion offers a meditation on creating liberatory spaces for students and faculty of color within academia. Much like other women scholars of color, Lorgia García Peña has struggled against the colonizing, racializing, classist, and unequal structures that perpetuate systemic violence within universities. Angela Y. Davis regards Community as Rebellion as “a life-saving and life-affirming text, it offers us the trenchant analysis and fearless strategy radical scholar-activists have long needed.” You can order a copy of Community as Rebellion here: https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/1870-community-as-rebellion Speakers: Lorgia García Peña is the author of Community as Rebellion: A Syllabus for Surviving Academia as a Woman of Color and is a first generation Latinx Studies scholar.

Angela Davis: Queer Revolutionary | LGBTQ+ Elders Project

LGBTQ&A

"I totally support the politics of coming out, but at the same time, I'm critical of the assumption that one's identity has to be the major driving force that determines one's politics."  For the final episode of our season, Angela Davis joins us to talk about how to keep pushing movements forward, why her incarceration was crucial in shaping her political journey, and why we must challenge the notion that there is only one important revolutionary struggle. Angela's newest book, Abolition. Feminism. Now., is out now.  Click here to listen to our recent interview where the historian Hugh Ryan breaks down the queer history of The Women's House of Detention.  LGBTQ&A is hosted by Jeffrey Masters and produced by The Advocate magazine, in partnership with GLAAD. A condensed transcript of each week's interview is posted on The Advocate's website. Follow us on Twitter: @lgbtqpod And for more, check out: lgbtqpodcast.com

Crews | Day 10 | Toni Morrison and Angela Davis

GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp

“I'm no longer accepting the things I cannot change...I'm changing the things I cannot accept.”  - Angela Davis  In a memo to her boss at Random House Publishing, where Toni Morrison worked as an Editor, she wrote of Angela Davis, “she is the fiercest woman I know. And I come from a long line of fierce women.”  This memo was in defense of the young activist, whom Toni herself had contacted and persuaded to write an autobiography at 26.  Toni’s boss had complained that Angela did not show any “humanness,” and seemed too disciplined to be real.  Toni wrote to him with a clap-back for the ages. “Angela is not here to meet your needs.” Angela is not here to perform your fantasy. “Your cry for more humanness,” she wrote, “is constant but I am suspicious of the word. It’s the word white people use when they want to alter a “fearless” or “uppity nigger.”  This memo sits in the archives of Columbia University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Toni’s boss’s response is not included, but the record reflects that Toni won the battle and remained editor of the book, and that Angela crafted the story she wanted for herself and the movement.  This...our dear friends, is what it looks like to have your crews back. To take a risk for the people you love and believe in, and to be willing to go the distance for what you know is right.  This is a Black girl love story involving two of the most influential Black women of any generation. It’s a story full of lessons on how to make moves on behalf of those that matter to us. Disclaimer: We do not own the rights to the music or speech excepts reference or played during this broadcast.
