3.10.2010-3.12.2010 :: “Angela Y. Davis: Radical Pedagogy” – a film by DANM Alumna Angela N. Carroll

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 - 8:00am

“Angela Y. Davis: Radical Pedagogy (Who Is Angela Davis?)” is a short featuring students, supporters and colleagues of Professor Davis engaging in conversations on her academic and activist work. The film experiments with traditional documentary and classic animation styles, often filling the frame with glitches of color and static. As textured academic heads speak, a clay Angela Davis narrates and guides the dialog with excerpts from prison industrial complex, race, gender and sexuality and critical pedagogy lectures.

The project—a collaboration between Angela N. Carroll and Eric Stanley—premiered Fall 2009 at “Angela Davis: Legacies in the Making,” a symposium celebrating her scholarship and retirement from UCSC.
