A Conversation with Dr. Angela Y. Davis

The Chicago Teachers Union Foundation proudly presents "A Conversation with legendary Dr. Angela Y. Davis" moderated by Dr. David Stovall. This evening discussion will focus on our juvenile and adult criminal justice systems. 

Dr. Angela Y. Davis, a prominent activist, educator and author life’s work emphasizes building disenfranchised communities for economic, racial, and gender justice. She is especially concerned with society’s tendency to devote more resources and attention to the prison system than to educational institutions.

Moderating this powerful and historic discussion is Dr. David O. Stovall, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) professor and the author of Born Out of Struggle. Dr. Stovall studies the influence of race in urban education, community development, and housing.
