parapolitics I : a. bell hooks

bell hooks, poet, educator, and militant is a remarkable figure in feminism and Black liberation. Like Angela Davis, hooks examines the legacy of slavery, colonialism, and patriarchal subordination of women together, innovating a hands-on pedagogical approach that attends to the attending historical and present trauma. Intensely personal, with a commitment to intersectional feminism grounded in biography, hooks' approach is unique in its concern for both men and women as oppressed and traumatized subjects of patriarchy. hooks is also a brilliant rethinker of pedagogy for liberation, developing strategies from Paolo Freire’s ‘Pedagogy of the Oppressed’ in a brutally honest, materialist reckoning of where we are today, examining demands for justice and learning how to organize together to attain this justice.
