Tribute to Bell Hooks art by Brett Cook

#repost From Brett Cook …sad. Thank you #bellhooks for so much: “If I were really asked to define myself, I wouldn’t start with race; I wouldn’t start with blackness; I wouldn’t start with gender; I wouldn’t start with feminism. I would start with stripping down to what fundamentally informs my life, which is that I’m a seeker on the path. I think of feminism, and I think of anti-racist struggles as part of it. But where I stand spiritually is, steadfastly, on a path about love.”From the Models of Accountability Series Acrylic and Spray Enamel on Mirrored Plexiglas, Books 50” X 48” X 16”Books by bell hooks Ain’t I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism All About Love: New Visions Art on My Mind: Visual Politics Be Boy Buzz Black Looks: Race and Representation Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood Breaking Bread: Insurgent Black Intellectual Life (with Cornel West)Communion: The Female Search for Love Daughters of the Dust: The Making of an African American Woman’s Film Feminism is for Everybody Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center Happy to be Nappy Homemade Love Home Grown: Engaged Cultural Criticism Killing Rage: Ending Racism Outlaw Culture: Resisting Representations Reel to Real: Race, Sex, and Class at the Movies Remembered Rapture: The Writer at Work Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-Esteem Salvation: Black People and Love Skin Again Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery Space Soul Sister: Women, Friendship, and Fulfillment Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity Where We Stand: Class Matters The Will To Change: Men, Masculinity and Love Witness by Brett Cook https://www.brett-cook.com/?fbclid=IwAR1Cxx-joftnjSD0UfV4r291BXq1TkKsezcJCSxgJ3cfTv4YHjiSBTx_GvI
