                        <b>Angela Davis</b> 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<em>he
Meaning of Freedom: And Other Difficult Dialogues</em> (City Lights
Open Media).</p>
                        <p> Called "the Latino poet of his generation,"
                        <b>Martín Espada</b> 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, <em>Zapata's Disciple</em> (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

A member of the Oakland-based arts collaboration, Dignidad Rebelde, <b>Melanie
Cervantes</b> 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.<br>
