Black Female Voices: A public dialogue between bell hooks and Melissa Harris-Perry

I learned a lot from this talk.

bell hooks’ week-long residency at The New School culminates with this momentous event: Black Female Voices: Who is Listening – A public dialogue between bell hooks + Melissa Harris-Perry.

bell hooks and Melissa Harris-Perry, founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South, Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, author, and host of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry,” join in a conversation about race, black womanhood, politics, media, and love.

bell hooks (née Gloria Watkins) is among the leading public intellectuals of her generation. Her writings cover a broad range of topics including gender, race, teaching, and contemporary culture. According to Dr. hooks, these topics must be understood as interconnected and linked in the production of systems of oppression and class domination.

bell hooks Scholar-in-Residence at The New School is an opportunity to directly engage Dr. hooks and her commitment to education as a practice of freedom.

Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts, based in New York City, is one of very few liberal arts schools in the country fostering critical thinking, social justice, and cross-cultural understanding.
