As part of her month-long term as the spring 2016 Dan and Maggie Inouye Distinguished Chair in Democratic Ideals, renowned American political activist, scholar and author Angela Davis is guest teaching a graduate course on American punishment at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. On Friday, April 8, she also gave a keynote presentation to a packed crowd at UH Mānoa’s Kennedy Theatre.

“Honestly, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said UHMānoa graduate student Misha Matsumoto. “When else are you going to be able to have one-on-one conversations with someone like Angela Davis and having her in class today was a phenomenal experience.”
