Angela Davis Delivers 2006 Moe Lecture

Posted on April 13th, 2006 by

Angela Davis, an internationally known political activist and public intellectual, delivered the 2006 Moe Lecture at Gustavus on April 12. Davis chose to address diversity as her main theme. Her talk centered on the varied meanings of diversity currently being used in American society as well as comments on immigration policies, education, and the prison system. Davis is a tenured professor in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The Moe Lectureship in Women’s Studies was established by Robert and Karin Moe in honor of their daughter, Kris Burke Moe. Davis is the eighth holder of the lectureship since its creation in 1996. Over the years, this lectureship has become a signature event for the Women’s Studies program at Gustavus, and serves as an opportunity for the College to bring many noteworthy scholars from various fields to campus.
