Angela Davis and Toni Morrison In Conversation: Literacy, Libraries and Liberation

Part 1   Part 2                                

Literacy skills serve as invaluable tools as we clear away the rubble in order to make room for a future peppered with the possibility of rebirth. Angela Davis and Toni Morrison explore this notion in a conversation that is essentially a celebration of reading and writing. The dialogue is one that occurs between old friends -- they bonded when Morrison edited Davis’ autobiography, which was published in 1974 -- and is the sharing of ideas between intellectual allies, and a fascinating exploration of literacy as a match capable of igniting recovery and redemption, and sparking resistance.
