Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans says
bell hooks (née Gloria Watkins) is among the leading public intellectuals of her generation. Her writings cover a broad range of topics including gender, race, teaching, and contemporary culture.

In this two-part film, extensively illustrated with many of the images under analysis, hooks makes a compelling argument for the transformative power of cultural criticism.

Following the film-screening, multidisciplinary artist Rashaad Newsome joins writer and critic Darnell L. Moore for a conversation on the intersection of race, capitalism, and gender. Using hooks’ framework, they examine popular culture and how art can be used as a means to help viewers understand the politics of difference.
