Book Discussion: "Writing Beyond Race" by bell hooks
Presenter: Discussion led by Billy Korinko ’09, former founding Director of SNC’s Men’s Initiative, and current lecturer & Ph.D. candidate in Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Kentucky.
This “year of bell hooks” event focuses conversation on hooks’ most recent book, Writing Beyond Race, in which hooks uses a series of essays in critique of modern media from films like "Precious" and "Crash" to the biography of Malcolm X. Hooks discusses how readers, writers, activists, and scholars can be called to challenge domination and oppression and think critically about race, gender, and class.
