- Vocabulary of change Angela Davis, Tim Wise in conversation /
- "Angela Davis and Tim Wise, two of this country's leading racial and social justice scholar-activists joined moderator Rose Aguilar on stage for a rare, unscrioted and free range conversation on the state of contemporary global politics. They explore how our culture's uncritical embrace of pervasive individualism, the myth of meritocracy, and entrenched institutional inequality has led to racialized public policy, the privatization of education, health care and the environment, and the commodification of many of our basic needs, including water and food. Through bold discourse, witm and an optomism of the will, Angela and Tim call for new vocabularies - a different kind of fluency and a different quality of literacy. With a shared reverence for historical memory and today's activism, they invoke the power of a new language to restore clarity and to unify global communities."--Opening screen.
