Marquette University, a Jesuit school in Milwaukee, plans to host radical communist activist Angela Davis for a lecture Wednesday night.The lecture is part of a series of “inclusive conversations” the school is hosting in order to confront the challenges of racial inequality.“As a Catholic, Jesuit university committed to social justice,” the university’s website reads, “we seek to energize our campus and engage all Milwaukee’s communities by asking, ‘What is your freedom dream now?'”Davis is most renowned for her career of radical leftist activism, involving leadership stints in both the Black Panther Party and Communist Party.Today, she continues to proclaim that “capitalism is the most dangerous kind of future we can imagine” telling the Los Angeles Times recently, “as long as we inhabit a capitalist democracy, a future of racial equality, gender equality, economic equality will elude us.”Davis is notorious for landing on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list in 1970 for fleeing police after she was charged with purchasing the murder weapon used in a courtroom shootout in 1970.At the Women’s March in January, Davis called on activists to become “more militant.”“Those who still defend the supremacy of white male hetero-patriarchy,” she said, “had better watch out.”Her views on abortion and marriage openly contradict Catholic teachings.Nevertheless, Marquette is touting Davis as a “living witness to history” and featuring her remarks as a “distinguished lecture.”Davis’ speaking fee has previously been listed between $10,000 and $20,000.
