Friday, Nov. 6 | Noon-1:30 p.m. | Hosted via Zoom
Join Women’s Center staff for our third discussion of Mikki Kendall’s book, “Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women a Movement Forgot.” Kendall’s prose is incisive but accessible, a must-read for any would-be intersectional feminist or anti-racist ally.
Book summary: Drawing on her own experiences with hunger, violence, and hypersexualization, along with incisive commentary on politics, pop culture, the stigma of mental health, and more, “Hood Feminism” is a rousing call to action for today’s feminists.
Kendall identifies as a Black Feminist and examines the ways that the mainstream feminist movement has succeeded in some ways and failed in others, citing the need to center access to basic needs and those of women who are most marginalized, including black women, women of color, and queer people.
“Hood Feminism” is available as an e-book through the Livingston Lord Library.
