  • excellent dialogue between a chicana and an african american woman about how their races were taught to deal cautiously with other races, the traditions they hold in common, the way our society makes life harder for women of color and a million other well reasoned, beautifully written things ps does anyone know how to move something from currently reading to another shelf i have not yet figured it out


  • A unique and important intersectional exchange on race, womanhood, community and education in today s United States, homegrown is one of those works that left me with questions than answers It is short, though powerful in its brevity A simple conversation between bell hooks and Amalia Mesa Bains, this work serves as a reminder of the power of the individual and the strength of community Inspired and thought provoking, particularly for women of color Highly recommended.

  • This is an amazing book I loved the Feminist Iconography section where hooks and Amalia explain that Frida Kahlo has been materialized That is very true Young people these days think they know Frida and her art
