*Angela Davis* is Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of 
Consciousness and Feminist Studies at the University of California, 
Santa Cruz. Davis came to national attention after being removed from 
her teaching position at UCLA because of her activism and membership in 
the Communist Party, USA. In 1970 she was placed on the FBI's Ten Most 
Wanted List on false charges. During her sixteen-month incarceration, a 
massive international "Free Angela Davis" campaign was organized, 
leading to her acquittal in 1972. Today Prof. Davis remains an advocate 
of prison abolition and has developed a powerful critique of racism in 
the criminal justice system. She is the author of many books, including 
her most recent collection, T/he Meaning of Freedom: And Other Difficult 
Dialogues/ (City Lights Open Media).

Called "the Latino poet of his generation," *Martín Espada* was born in 
Brooklyn, New York in 1957. He has published more than fifteen books as 
a poet, editor, essayist and translator. He has received other 
recognition such as the Shelley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society 
of America, the Robert Creeley Award, the PEN/Revson Fellowship and a 
Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.  His work has been widely translated; 
collections of poems have been published in Spain, Puerto Rico and 
Chile. His book of essays, /Zapata's Disciple/ (South End Press, 1998), 
has been banned in Tucson as part of the Mexican-American Studies 
Program outlawed by the state of Arizona. A graduate of Northeastern 
University Law School and a former tenant lawyer, Espada is currently a 
professor in the Department of English at the University of 
Massachusetts-Amherst.

A member of the Oakland-based arts collaboration, Dignidad Rebelde, 
*Melanie Cervantes* is a Xicana activist-artist whose work includes 
black and white illustrations, paintings, installations and paper 
stencils. She is best known, however, for her prolific political screen 
prints and posters which have been used by movements across the globe.  
Employing vibrant colors and hand-drawn illustrations, her work moves 
those viewed as marginal to the center -- featuring powerful youth, 
elders, women, and queer and indigenous peoples.
