Homegrown - bell hooks, Amalia Mesa-Bains

  • Eigenschappen

In Homegrown, cultural critics bell hooks and Amalia Mesa-Bains reflect on the innate solidarity between Black and Latino culture. Riffing on everything from home and family to multiculturalism and the mass media, hooks and Mesa-Bains invite readers to re-examine and confront the polarizing mainstream discourse about Black-Latino relationships that is too often negative in its emphasis on political splits between people of color. A work of activism through dialogue, Homegrown is a declaration of solidarity that rings true even ten years after its first publication. This anniversary edition includes a new afterword, in which hooks and Mesa-Bains reflect on the changes, conflicts, and criticisms of the last decade.
