Mind, Body and Soul – Women of Color Conference opening keynote

Mind, Body and Soul – Women of Color Conference opening keynote

Feminist writer bell hooks opens the Women of Color Eleventh Annual Conference. Feminist, social thinker, memoirist, intellectual, and teacher bell hooks has written over 24 books, including Ain’t I A Woman: Black Women and Feminism, named one of the 20 most influential women’s books of the past 20 years by Publishers Weekly. Utne Reader calls hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Could Change Your Life,” and Atlantic Monthly lauds her ability to bring “moral imagination and critical intelligence to bear on the definingly American matter of race.” Although hooks is primarily known as a feminist thinker, her writings cover a broad range of topics including gender, racism, teaching, classism, and the significance of media for contemporary culture. She is Distinguished Professor of English at City College in New York.
