Angela Davis gave an outstanding keynote to a packed room at the 2009 NWSA annual conference, “Difficult Dialogues.”

If you weren’t among the 1,600 who attended the conference, you can still hear what Davis had to say as she reflected on her career as an activist and a scholar, the history of women’s studies, health care reform, and more.

By visiting the NWSA Web site, you can download her speech, which is divided into two parts:

1) Angela Davis on NWSA

Angela Davis talks about the National Women’s Studies Association, reflects on its history, and congratulates Beverly Guy-Sheftall for the work she is doing as president.

2) Angela Davis on Difficult Dialogues

Within the context of the theme of the conference, Davis talks about the positioning of women’s studies
within academia and its relationship to other academic fields, her past, and her aspirations for the future.
