Edmonds Community College's lunchtime lecture series brings thought-provoking and inspirational speakers to campus. Each quarter, a committee of students, faculty, and staff invite scholars, artists, activists, and community leaders to campus to spark discussion and reflection in our community. This quarter's lectures feature:

Angela Davis: In Celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day — 12:30 p.m., Thurs., Jan. 17, Black Box Theatre and 6:30 p.m. at the Lynnwood Convention Center, 3711 196th Street Southwest, Lynnwood

Through her activism and scholarship over the last decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in our nation’s quest for social justice. Her work as an educator—both at the university level and in the larger public sphere—has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. Davis has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In recent years a persistent theme of her work has been the range of social problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of those communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination.
