Abstract

[event speaker]

Moran is also thrilled to be bringing in author Angela J. Davis, who will be talking about her book, “Policing the Black Man: Arrest, Prosecution, and Imprisonment,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Central Library.

Angela J. Davis isn’t to be confused with Angela Y. Davis, the black power figure, author and academic known internationally for combating oppression.

Also an activist, Angela J. Davis is a law professor at American University in Washington, D.C., and a former director of the D.C. Public Defender Service. Her new book puts together 11 essays from scholars and criminal justice practitioners offering policy suggestions.
