Erandi de Silva on An Autobiography
15 June, 2021
Writing in her late-twenties, Angela Davis’ autobiography documents her childhood, education, activism, resulting imprisonment, and trial. Using her lived experience, Davis makes a case for the abolition of prisons, offering a critical perspective on the larger systems surrounding this architectural typology and provides insight on how we as individuals can become engaged to minimize oppression in our society.
