"Profusely illustrated with materials found in the archive, including press coverage, photographs, court sketches, videos, music, writings, correspondence, and Davis’s political writings, the book also features interviews with Angela Davis and Lisbet Tellefsen, the archivist who collected those materials, as well as essays that touch on visibility and invisibility, history, memory, and the iconography of black radical feminism."
"This wonderfully illustrated scholarly catalogue is a treasure trove. . . . Seize the Time successfully complicates and challenges our understanding of Angela Y. Davis and the visual culture (past and present) inspired by her ongoing fight for social justice."
Rebecca VanDiver | Woman's Art Journal
"It will be of great interest to readers involved with current activities on behalf of racial justice and to anyone interested in the political possibilities of visual imagery."
“The book is both a piece of history and a piece of art.”
Pendarvis Harshaw | KQED
