African American author and feminist cultural critic bell hooks (yes, her name is spelled in lower-case)
will be speaking in a rare appearance sponsored by the West Michigan Women's Studies Council at Fountain Street Church on October 2, 2006 at 7 p.m. FREE and open to the public.
Among her over 25 books, hooks has written several groundbreaking and landmark reads on feminism such as "Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center" (when she was only 18 years old), and "Aint I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism."
In addition, she has authored several children's books including "Happy to be Nappy," about loving your hair, and a series on loving relationships of which "All About Love" is my personal favorite. More recently, she has written books on the topics of art, education, men as feminists, and black power.
