The Schlesinger Library Reopens September 12
With the reopening of the Schlesinger Library on September 12, this fall will mark the launch of the Judy Chicago portal and the conference, "Radical Commitments: The Life and Legacy of Angela Davis."
Judy Chicago Portal Launch
As part of the launch, panelists will explore the value of feminist artists’ archives and trends in online research portals.
Radical Commitments: The Life and Legacy of Angela Davis
Informed by Davis’s life and work, a cross-generational group of leading scholars, activists, musicians, and incarcerated women will discuss movements in activism and social theory over the past half century. The conference will also mark the opening of an exhibition highlighting materials from the Angela Y. Davis Papers, an archive recently acquired by the Schlesinger Library in partnership with the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research.
