Northeastern University’s Africana Studies Program invites you to a symposium honoring the life and legacy of the trailblazing Black feminist scholar bell hooks (1952-2021). A prolific author, committed teacher, brilliant intellectual, and bold visionary, hooks left an indelible mark on generations of people including activists, artists, and scholars. This one-day symposium will consist of three panels offering formal and informal reflections about hooks profound and wide-ranging impact.

A trailblazing cultural theorist and activist, public intellectual, teacher and feminist writer, bell hooks, who transitioned at the young age of 69, authored around 40 books in a career spanning more than four decades. Exploring the intersecting oppressions of gender, race and class, her writings additionally reflected her concerns with issues related to art, history, sexuality, psychology and spirituality, ultimately with love at the heart of community healing.
