Book 3/18 on my 2019 to-read list was Ain’t I A Woman by bell hooks.
I’ve been working my way through this book for a few months. In part because I’ve been busy with other projects, books, with work, with school, etc. But also because I needed to give some of the ideas time to marinate.
Most of the book focused on the history of the feminist movement on turtle island from black women’s perspectives, and it’s a very different story that way. Black women attempting to voice the struggles they face under white supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism have faced backlash from men of all backgrounds, other black women, and most notably from white women claiming to be feminists who have no interest in working to liberate ALL womxn. 
Feminist history has been sanitized and white washed to such an extent that eugenicists, blatant white supremacists and other monsters are held up as feminist heroines (I’m looking at you, famous five). I feel like it goes without saying, but PAINTING OVER THAT HISTORY IS REALLY, REALLY DANGEROUS. When we forget that kind of shit we put ourselves at risk of repeating it (and we are repeating it. White feminists’ silence on systemic racism is deafening). If you call yourself a feminist it is your responsibility to know where it came from and what it has and has not achieved. It is your responsibility to know who has been left out of the conversation and to give them the space that they need to speak. If your not sure where to start with that, bell hooks’ work might give you some ideas.

bell hocks, cujo nome é grafado assim mesmo, em minúsculas - para deslocar o foco da figura autoral para suas ideias - idealizou esse livro para o grande público, já que a maioria do seu trabalho era voltado para a academia.
O que ela propõe, de maneira simples e direta, é disseminação dos ideais feministas por todos, homens e mulheres. 
Um dos destaques da obra é justamente a importância da adesão masculina ao movimento.
A linguagem do livro é realmente de fácil compreensão e aborda várias temáticas feministas. 
O feminismo é um assunto que precisa ser muito difundido e abordado em todas as esferas sociais. Muita gente ainda encara o tema com muito preconceito e acha que é algo inerente ao sexo feminino, principalmente às mulheres lésbicas, de forma exclusiva. Ledo engano. O feminismo é para todos os gêneros, todas as idades, todos os estilos. É para uma sociedade mais justa, mais evoluída e mais feliz! 
Gostei muito dessa leitura! #bellhooks #ofeminismoéparatodomundo #mulherbacanalê #leiamulheres

Super latergram share of a few photos from the last library mini pop up at the annual Youth Summit event, Scamming The Patriarchy which took place at the New Museum, Saturday April 13. 
Thank you so much to @newmuseum for inviting me to be a part of this awesome gathering. 
It was a day of nerdy heart based Black Feminist led conversations for with super smart critical thinking young folks on the impact and importance of Black Women’s literature and livelihood. We talked about Jordan, Lorde, Morrison, Conde, Smith, Danticat, Bambara. Also the connections between capitalism, poverty, patriarchy, abuse, trauma and incarceration. Folks stopped by to trade books, but I mostly gave books away, cause I can’t resist feeding the passion and interest of young folks. I went with 5 full boxes and went home with 4 cause I can’t deny them what they want/need 😬😬
The youth of today are on fire and part of my purpose is to fan their flames. 
Thank you to everyone that stopped by, all this gorgeous book loving beauty truly made my day!! Next up we’re at Brooklyn Tea on Sunday, April 28, from noon to 5. See you then!! #bookstagram #booklovers #bellhooks #poetry #blackbooksmatter #mobilelibrary #blackfeminism #abolishpatriarchy #newmuseum #goodreads #latergram #blacklibrary #popuplibrary #bedstuy #brooklyn #freeblackwomenslibrary

Nella cultura viene data tanta importanza a una specifica forma d’amore: l’amore di coppia. Ci viene detto che questo da senso alla vita ed è il fondamento di una vita felice. Io sono d’accordo sul fatto che l’amore sia alla base di una vita felice, ma non credo che l’amore di coppia sia quello più importante.
-----------
La forma di amore più importante è a mio parere l’amore per se stessi, perché questo davvero sta alla base di tutto e serve come misura per tutte le altre forme di amore. Se non amiamo noi stesse, se non vediamo la nostra vera bellezza, se non ci accettiamo per come siamo, come possiamo chiedere a qualcun'altro di farlo? La verità è che se non amiamo noi stesse finiremo per accettare di avere accanto altre persone che non ci amano, perché’ non sappiamo ancora di essere speciali e uniche. ---------
Uno dei consigli migliori a riguardo viene da queste frasi di Bell Hooks, che ci incitano a dare prima di tutto a fare a noi stesse l’amore che sogniamo di ricevere dagli altri, l’amore delle favole di quando eravamo piccole e l’amore di tutte le migliori storie d’amore di sempre! Se non lo facciamo, non possiamo neanche sperare di riceverlo dagli altri. 
E voi cosa ne pensate a riguardo? -Elide

dear Brown girl, “the moment we choose to love, we begin to move against domination, against oppression. the moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. that action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom. “ - bell hooks .

joy is freedom. learn to hold your joy. when you do, squeeze them and let them know you are a better human with them in your life.

"Emoções Reprimidas: A Chave da Sobrevivência
.
.
A prática de se reprimir os sentimentos como estratégia de sobrevivência continuou a ser um aspecto da vida dos negros, mesmo depois da escravidão. Como o racismo e a supremacia dos brancos não foram eliminados com a abolição da escravatura, os negros tiveram que manter certas barreiras emocionais. E, de uma maneira geral, muitos negros passaram a acreditar que a capacidade de se conter emoções era uma característica positiva. No decorrer dos anos, a habilidade de esconder e mascarar os sentimentos passou a ser considerada como sinal de uma personalidade forte. Mostrar os sentimentos era uma bobagem."

“The process begins with the individual woman’s acceptance that American women, without exception, are socialized to be racist, classist and sexist, in varying degrees, and that labeling ourselves feminists does not change the fact that we must consciously work to rid ourselves of the legacy of negative socialization.”
•
“The idealized woman becomes property, symbol, and ornament; she is stripped of her essential human qualities. The devalued woman becomes a different kind of object; she is the spittoon in which men release their negative anti-woman feelings.”

Denial feeds codependency. Codependency is a compulsive form of self abandonment where you have no idea where you end and others begin. The pain of living under the system of racism means that many of us use addictive behaviours to self soothe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the next ONLINE sista circle session on Sat. 27 April we're studying chapter 5 of Sisters of the Yam by Bell Hooks. We'll have a deeper conversation about what's underneath this behavior for black women, and how we can begin to reclaim our lives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Na realidade, deveríamos ter espalhado a notícia de que o feminismo permitiria que as mulheres e os homens conhecessem o amor. Hoje sabemos disso. 
O feminismo visionário é uma política sábia e amorosa. A alma de nossa política é o comprometimento com o fim da dominação. O amor jamais poderá se enraizar em uma relação fundamentada em dominação e coerção."

Bell Hooks ❤️I really worry about the level of disconnection we’re experiencing in society, that leads to hate and intense polarisation and on an individual basis, loneliness and feelings of powerlessness. Reading Bell Hooks reminds me it doesn’t have to be this way. I love campaigning because it creates communities and solidarity. But how can we change this at a systemic level? #allaboutlove #bellhooks

Essa é a melhor definição de "feminismo" que eu já li. Além de dizer bem claramente que não dá pra ser feminista e aceitar outros tipos de opressão (tipo racismo...), deixa claro que o inimigo é o sexismo, e não os homens em si. É tipo: o problema é o que nos deixa em níveis diferentes, é isso que precisamos destruir ❤ a definição é da bell hooks, em "O feminismo é para todo mundo". Leiam esse livro, ele é fantástico!.

Essa é a melhor definição de "feminismo" que eu já li. Além de dizer bem claramente que não dá pra ser feminista e aceitar outros tipos de opressão (tipo racismo...), deixa claro que o inimigo é o sexismo, e não os homens em si. É tipo: o problema é o que nos deixa em níveis diferentes, é isso que precisamos destruir ❤ a definição é da bell hooks, em "O feminismo é para todo mundo". Leiam esse livro, ele é fantástico!.

Codependency is a compulsive form of self abandonment where you have no idea where you end and others begin. The pain of living under the system of racism means that many of us use addictive behaviours to self soothe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the next ONLINE sista circle session on Sat. 27 April we're studying chapter 5 of Sisters of the Yam by Bell Hooks. We'll have a deeper conversation about what's underneath this behavior for black women, and how we can begin to reclaim our lives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Womanism was coined by Alice Walker, the author of The Color Purple. 💜⠀
-⠀
Womanism is distinctive from feminism, due to the intersection of race AND gender based social inequities unique to black women. ⠀
-⠀
Womanism focuses on women’s natural contribution to society & centers our strength in personal awareness & unity.⠀
-⠀
Womanism emphasizes the regal walk of life that graces black women. We are like no other. We will stand tall in knowing that we’re often imitated, but never duplicated.⠀

Terceira semana, capítulos 7, 8 e 9 lidos ok? Os capítulos 7 e 8 apresentam um tema em comum: cinema e representação. A autora investiga: " [...] existe um olhar da mulher negra? Como as mulheres negras se relacionam com as políticas de gênero da representação?". Capítulo 9 é um soco e nos faz refletir o quão misógina é nossa sociedade refletindo em homofobia: "Escolher se parecer com uma 'mulher' quando se é 'homem' é sempre construído na mentalidade patriarcal com uma perda, uma escolha que só tem valor de rídiculo"  #lendoolharesnegros #bellhooks #mulheresnegras #lendomulheresnegras

Bell Hooks wrote “"When we can see ourselves as we truly are and #accept ourselves, we build the necessary foundation for #self-love”. I felt that in my core.

*
*
To maintain the level of #success i hope for and love that i desire i need to look within. I am striving to work on how i think of myself and #love myself. This is a never ending process because i will be thrown new obstacles, which require new thinking to develop. *

In episode 1 of Tense Gays: "No More Trauma" we quote Bell Hooks from this panel discussion, titled "Are You Still a Slave; Liberating the Black Female Body", broadcasted in 2014 and presented by the New School for Liberal Arts at Eugene Lang College.
As a starting point to the main segment of our show we break down the quote which says, .
"We gotta get over thinking that just because someone is showing us a representation of hate that there’s an inbodied critique. If we are being entertained by a representation of hate we are not learning how to oppose that, to think differently." This quote always put me in my feelings because it really made me think about how influential images can be and how can be are used to perpetuate the white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy. 
What do you guys think? 
Listen to the podcast to hear what Invictus Me and I had to say about it. -BonnetBlack✨

Em seu livro “Ensinando a Transgredir: a educação como prática da liberdade”, a feminista negra Bell Hooks, discute questões raciais, de classe, de gênero, de maneira interseccional, aprofundando as problemáticas de opressões estruturais que permeiam as nossas vivências objetivas e subjetivas. A presença de grupos privilegiados e de grupos desumanizados na sociedade, faz a autora questionar a quem pertence o que conhecemos e como conhecemos. Influenciada por Paulo Freire, ressalta que o conhecimento como prática de liberdade precisa gerar em ambos (professores e alunos), um movimento de autorrealização, que é a vontade de saber ligada intimamente a vontade de vir a ser. Porém, se faz necessário que esse vir a ser esteja comprometido com uma transformação social democrática. Ao apontar tais problemáticas  que influenciam a nossa construção acadêmica, Hooks oferece a branquitude sexista heteronormativa dominante um espaço de desconstrução, pois, compreende a sala de aula como um espaço político crítico. Implicar o sujeito a reconhecer o saber científico na sua história e memória é transgressor, e assim como todo processo de transformação, esse não se dá sem sentimentos de angústia e sofrimento. 
Ensinando a transgredir me faz refletir os processos psíquicos de identificação, socialização, negação, aceitação e ressignificação na realidade do sujeito negro e principalmente da mulher negra, já que a relação de interseccionalidade lhe é sempre conflitante. O imaginário psíquico da negritude é obrigado a todo tempo a se convencer de que está sendo representado, que ali também é seu lugar, mesmo que não se tenha nenhuma representação física ou elaborações intelectuais e empáticas que enxerguem a verdadeira violência do apagamento dos seus corpos. A falta de uma verdadeira diversidade cultural e intelectual está nos atingindo e nos moldando. O que estamos nos tornando? A sala de aula enquanto um organismo vivo produz vozes, mas também silêncios. Vocês percebem como esses processos têm lhes atingido? 
Já pensaram nisso?

Não esqueçam de estar atentos a sua saúde mental! Procure um psicólogo!

“There is an aspect of our vocation that is sacred; our work is not merely to share information but to share in the intellectual and spiritual growth of our students.” Heavily inspired by Bell Hooks and her work ‘Education as the Practice of Freedom’ when thinking about the new teachers we bring into our community. Here’s Jamie Warren, one of Think Olio’s profs that embody this the most.

ㅎㅎㅎ교육철학은 재밌다🥰
특히 여성주의로 교육철학보기
최고 흥미유발주제
수업들을때마다 속이 다 시원
나의 코멘트
:
여전히 꾸밈노동의 범주에 있으면서 사회적으로 ‘여성스러운’(여성스럽다고 여겨지는) 옷과 화장을 피해간다고 그것이 여성 인권에 기여하는가?
독특하고 스모키한 화장, 그리고 짧고 강해보이는 당당함(몸매를 부각하는 섹시함)을 강조한 옷들을 입는다고 그게 여성 해방에 도움이 되는지에 관한 의문.
자본주의적 소비가 여성 해방의 전부는 아니다.
오히려 여성은 상품화 과정에서 또다시 약자가 된다는 생각. 
그래도 사회가 추구하는 편견을 깨는데는 약간의 의의는 있을듯,,
+여성들로 하여금 약간의 속시원함을 느끼게 하는 효과가 있으니,
다만 거기에서 그치지만은 않았으면

It’s been exactly 1 year since The Feminist On CellBlock Y came out! .
.
I never imagined ppl would care so much about Success Stories and what we were doing in Soledad. It’s been amazing to see what it means to ppl and to watch this work grow. Now we’re spreading into 3 new prisons in a month! (GoFundMe in bio!) .
.
So grateful to @elbordeaux and @contessagayles for seeing value in our story and bringing it to the world. .

 #Shoutout to the brothas still doing the work inside! Hit me if yall wanna write them!
