    Pacific University welcomes civil rights activist Angela Davis on Friday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Stoller Center and a crowd of more than 2,000 is expected. Davis' talk, originally scheduled for Feb. 6, had been postponed due to the snowstorm. Davis has been a renowned public figure since the 1960s, gaining notoriety for her civil rights activism. She came to national attention after being removed from her teaching position in the Philosophy Department at UCLA as a result of her social activism and her membership in the Communist Party, USA. She is a retired professor with the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and is the former director of the university’s Feminist Studies Department. For the past several decades her work has been largely in the area of prison reform. Her appearance is sponsored by the Pacific University's Center for Peace & Spirituality, Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation, Center for Civic Engagement, Office of Diversity, Office for Student Academic Inclusion and Success and Student Activities.
