Angela Davis and Assata Shakur as Outlaws

Mechthild Nagel, State University of New York (SUNY), Cortland, is publishing Angela Y Davis and Assata Shakur as Women Outlaws: Resisting U.S. State Violence, in volume 13 of Wagadu: A Transnational Journal of Women's and Gender Studies (Summer 2015). Here is the abstract.

They continue to speak out against racist and sexist injustices and global capitalism.
