Davis is remembered by many for her political activism in the 1960s and 70s. In 1969, she became a national
figure after being removed from her teaching position in the Philosophy Department at UCLA as a result of
what she says was her social activism and her membership in the Communist Party. In 1970, she was placed
on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List and was subsequently arrested for a high profile crime she was later
acquitted of.

Since then, Davis has been a vocal human rights activist who lectures around the world. She has authored
five books and numerous articles, essays and anthologies. She is a tenured professor in the History of
Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is also a member of the advisory
board of the Prison Activist Resource Center and is working on a comparative study of women's
imprisonment in the U.S., the Netherlands and Cuba.
