I realized many women of color work in similar settings. I reached out to two
colleagues, Trina Jackson and Carol Gómez, about responding to our expe-
riences. I was then reading bell hooks's book, Sisters of the Yam: Black Women
and Self-Recovery. It was an affirmation of black women in defining our own
history and voice in a society that continues to minimize us. We hosted a
workshop called “The Recovery of Our Souls: Women of Color on Feminism,” a
pow- erful experience, ...

bel hooks bell hooks's writings have been central to the development of African
American feminism and to feminism in general. In this essay from her book
Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery, hooks turns her attention to
the need for love in black women's lives. With good reason, historically black
women and men learned to stifle their love for themselves and for one another,
hooks argues. For black women, especially, to create lives of inner fulfillment,
they need to ...

Recovery by bell hooks,” College Literature 22.2 (1995): 134. 53 Ibid. 54
Byerman's critique goes further than simply the question of inclusiveness. Indeed,
he is suspicious of hooks's very conceptualization of self-recovery: Self- recovery
as a discursive practice assumes a middle- class audience of individuals
operating in a competitive, stressful world with few communal resources. It
projects a norm of ...

bell hooks bell hooks has written extensively and radically about racism and
black liberation, and has been at the forefront of black critiques of white feminism

her involvement in feminist and black liberation movements convinced her of the
importance of mental health or psychic well-being (hooks, 1993, p. 15) for
effective ...
