(bell hooks) Race, Gender, Religion & Spirituality


In case you missed it, this interview with bell hooks in the NYT Opinionator is pretty interesting. Its focus is the intersection between race, gender, religion, and spirituality. You can read it here. I found most interesting two things: [1] stories about her life in a small, predominantly white Appalachian town in Kentucky, and [2] the comments about Buddhist-Christianity, and the way for her love as spiritual practice grounds her life and work as a necessary complement to feminism. I’m wondering how the two points hold together in terms of commitments to place and to home, and to living together against systems of domination.
