About the Author

bell hooks is the author of numerous critically acclaimed and influential books on the politics of race, gender, class, and culture. Celebrated as one of our nation’s leading public intellectuals by The Atlantic Monthly, as well as one of Utne Reader’s “100 Visionaries Who Could Change Your Life,” she is a charismatic speaker who divides her time among teaching, writing, and lecturing around the world.

Her first book, Ain’t I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism (South End Press, 1981), which she began when she was 19, was named one of the “twenty most influential women’s books of the last twenty years” by Publishers Weekly in 1992. A prolific writer, hooks has published many other books with South End Press, including Feminist Theory, Black Looks, Yearning, Talking Back, and Breaking Bread (with Cornel West).

A frequent lecturer in the United States and abroad, her most recent books from South End Press include Feminism Is for Everybody: Passionate Politics and Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery (Updated Edition), and Homegrown: Engaged Cultural Criticism with Amalia Mesa-Bains.
