    Radical Perspectives on the Empowerment of Afro-American Women

    Lessons for the 1980s

    Angela Y. Davis
    This paper is a revised version of a speech delivered at the Tenth National Women's Studies Association (NWSA) Conference, co-sponsored by Emory University and Agnes Scott College, held at Emory College in Atlanta, Georgia, in June 1987. Angela Davis was invited by NWSA conference organizers to address the audience as one of the keynote speakers because of her ability to provide historical information often missing from mainstream text and to present conceptions of political systems and vehicles for social change that are different from those usually thought about. The Editors offer her remarks as one point of departure for movement toward an education for the liberation of both women and men in our society.
