bell hooks & Melissa Harris-Perry livestream

I think this event happened last Friday (the days are going by in a blur). It was an interesting conversation to watch. bell hooks was amazing, of course. Perry didn’t bring it like I thought she would. I can’t be mad at her. I would probably freeze up around bell hooks too. As hooks noted, “she has twenty years (of life/writing experience)” on Perry. The issues that were brought up sometimes faltered, because Perry was nervous. However, I would still recommend folks watch it:

“bell hooks (née Gloria Watkins), scholar-in-residence at The New School, is among the leading public intellectuals of her generation. Her writings cover a broad range of topics including gender, race, teaching, and contemporary culture. Melissa Harris-Perry is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South, Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, author, and host of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry.”  via livestream
