Angela Davis on racism

In an interview for the International Film Festival on Human Rights (FIFDH) in Geneva last week, Angela Davis reflects on her activism and the current challenges of the struggle for anti-racism and equality. Welcoming the entry of the structural character of racism into present mainstream discourse, she discusses new forms of global and collective awareness, issues of intersectionality, racial capitalism and the importance of climate justice for the feminist struggle. At the end of the interview, Angela Davis also answers questions from the Geneva Women’s Strike Committee and addresses the spread of islamophobia in Europe, the new terrain of struggle opened up by Muslim feminism and issues of gender violence.
