bell hooks Coming to Morehead

Exciting News! The outstanding African-American feminist bell hooks is coming to Morehead State University for a talk on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 7pm in Button Hall. Originally, Gloria Watkins from Bowling Green KY, bell hooks is one of the great writers of our time, one of the few writers who combines a razor-sharp critical edge with helpful perspectives on how people can address the difficult conundrums of living in American society. Her work on white supremacy, love, and masculinity is all great stuff. She also seems like a decent person from the two times I've heard her speak. Can't wait.
