    Dr. Davis has been deeply involved in the quest for social justice. She is an educator at both the University level and the larger public sphere and has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial and gender equality. 

    Dr. Davis is the author of eight (8) books and has lectured throughout the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. Most recently, she has focused her research and work on problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination. She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies (70s) as a person who spent eighteen (18) months in jail and on trial, after being place on the FBI's 'Ten Most Wanted List'.

    Currently, she is completing a book on prisons and American History.
