MHP's dialogue with bell hooks

Nov. 9, 201301:24:48

As part of the New School's Black Female Voices series, host Melissa Harris-Perry led a well-received public dialogue Friday afternoon with famed author bell hooks, who is described by the event's host, The New School, as follows:

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.
