Short Description: 
Feminism & Abolition, Angela Davis
Excerpts from Angela Davis’ presentation at the University of Chicago on Feminism and Abolition.  Herman Wallace: Revolutionary; Mumia Abu-Jamal’s message for his memorial.
 
“Prisons are constituted as normal.  It takes a lot of work to persuade people to think beyond the bars and to be able to imagine a world without prisons and to struggle for the abolition of imprisonment as the dominant mode of punishment.   –Angela Davis
 
“The long and tortured life of Herman Wallace, of the famed Angola 3, was meant to terrorize us, to stifle the resistance that flamed throughout the Black Nation and many others across the country during the 1960s and 70s.  If so, it failed utterly.”       --Mumia Abu-Jamal
