Intimate politics : how I grew up Red, fought for free speech, and became a feminist rebel by Bettina Aptheker( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aptheker was an activist participant in some of the major events of the '60s and '70s-the Free Speech Movement in Berkeley, the antiwar movement and the Angela Davis trial. As the daughter of U.S. Communist Party leader Herbert Aptheker, she was virtually a red-diaper princess, only to "fall from grace" with the party in her late 20s. Her highly politicized New York City upbringing was one of middle class comfort, although sorely affected by McCarthyist persecution-as well as sexual abuse by her father, deeply repressed memories of which she uncovered in adulthood. The author, who taught her first women's studies course in 1977, describes herself as a latecomer to the women's movement (the Communist Party considered it "petit bourgeois "). A personal transformation paralleled the political, as her repressed lesbianism also surfaced and gradually culminated in a fulfilling long-term relationship

Free Angela Davis, and all political prisoners! : a transnational campaign for liberation by Bettina Aptheker( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1970 California issued a warrant for the arrest of political activist and scholar Angela Y. Davis and the FBI placed her on its Ten Most Wanted list. The police search and her arrest in New York City in October 1970 garnered national media attention and marked the beginning of a nearly two-year national and international campaign to free Angela Davis. This archive brings together personal letters, public statements and other documents that highlight key aspects of Angela Davis's case and the organizing campaign to secure her freedom. It illuminates the campaign's transnational reach and the ways Davis's case inspired individuals as well as an emerging movement that critically linked U.S. racism and its prison system
