What are the conditions needed for folks to bridge cultural and racial divides? By "writing beyond race," hooks attempts to model the constructive ways scholars, activists, and readers can challenge and change systems of domination. In the spirit of previous classics like Outlaw Culture, and Reel to Real, bell hooks, in this brand new collection of essays interrogates contemporary cultural notions of race, gender, and class.  From the films Precious and Crash to The Helpand a recent biography of Malcolm X, hooks holds forth on the way race is being talked about in this "post-racial" era.

Bell Hooks was born Gloria Watkins on September 25, 1952. She grew up in a small Southern community that gave her a sense of belonging as well as a sense of racial separation. She has degrees from Stanford University, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. She has served as a noted activist and social critic and has taught at numerous colleges. Hooks uses her great-grandmother's name to write under as a tribute to her ancestors. Hooks writes daring and controversial works that explore African-American female identities. In works such as Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism and Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black, she points out how feminism works for and against black women. Oppressed since slavery, black women must overcome the dual odds of race and gender discrimination to come to terms with equality and self-worth.
