About the Author:

One of the leading public intellectuals of her generation, bell hooks has authored over 20 books, including several classics in African-American and Women's Studies. Known mainly as a feminist thinker, hooks addresses a broad range of issues related to gender, race, teaching, and media.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Though many of us recognize the depth of our pain and hurt, we do not usually collectively organize in an ongoing manner to find and share ways to heal ourselves. Our literature has helped, however. Progressive black women artists have shown ongoing concern about healing our wounds. Much of the celebrated fiction by black women writers is concerned with identifying our pain and imaginatively constructing maps for healing.
