Black Female Voices: Who is Listening - A public dialogue between bell hooks + Melissa Harris-Perry

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall
General Public 

Join 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," 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.  

This week-long residency is an opportunity for The New School Community to directly engage Dr. hooks and her commitment to education as a practice of freedom.
