Listen to the August MAG-Net Digital Dialogue Podcast "The Art of Creative Resistance for Racial Justice" | Mag-Net

Listen to the August MAG-Net Digital Dialogue Podcast "The Art of Creative Resistance for Racial Justice" | Mag-Net | Racial Equity Resources | Scoop.it
Leadership Learning Community's insight:

Since the unjust acquittal of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin last month, a groundswell of cultural resistance and responses across the country has helped to bring the racial justice discourse to center stage.  For generations, the role of culture, art, media, song, poetry, and performance in social movements has been paramount in winning the hearts & minds of people.  

But of course today, our digital media environment has changed profoundly.
 

How are cultural organizers and artists adapting and using new and old strategies in a corporate controlled media environment that are hostile to communities of color and poor people?  This digital dialogue featured a dialogue with cultural workers, artists and performers who grapple with these questions.  They shared cultural organizing best practices and resources for racial justice work.

All About Love | New Visions: bell hooks

All About Love: New Visions

~ bell hooks (author) More about this product
List Price: $13.99
Price: $10.88
You Save: $3.11 (22%)

The word "love" is most often defined as a noun, yet...we would all love to better if we used it as a verb," writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provacative and intensely personel, the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist skewers our view of love as romance. In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness.

 

As bell hooks uses her incisive mind and razor-sharp pen to explode th question "What is love?" her answers strike at both the mind and heart. In thirteen concise chapters, hooks examines her own search for emotional connection and society's failure to provide a model for learning to love. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for the individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the "100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life." All About Love is a powerful affirmation of just how profoundly she can
