Amid rising public concern about the proliferation and privatization of prisons, and their promise of enormous profits, world-renowned author and activist Angela Davis argues for the abolition of the prison system as the dominant way of responding to America's social ills. The very future of democracy, she argues, depends on our ability to develop radical theories and practices that make it possible to plan and fight for a world beyond the prison industrial complex.
Angela Yvonne Davis is a professor of history of consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
