Her articles and essays have appeared in numeous journals and anthologies, and she is the author of nine books. During the last twenty-five years, Professor Davis has lectured in all fifty of the United States, as well as in Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, and the former Soviet Union. She is a living witness to the historical struggles of the contemporary era.
