Abstract

Angela Y Davis and Assata Olugbala Shakur have many overlapping histories of struggle in the face of state repression. Both revolutionary freedom fighters were captured after spending time underground as a result of intense surveillance and being marked for outlaw status. They continue to speak out against racist and sexist injustices and global capitalism.

Keywords: resisting state violence, United States criminal justice system, surveillance, Black Panthers, Cuba
