Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood by bell hooks 🇺🇸: Stitching together girlhood memories with the finest threads of innocence, feminist #intellectual bell hooks presents a powerfully intimate account of growing up in the South. A memoir of ideas and perceptions, Bone Black shows the unfolding of female creativity and one strong-spirited child's journey toward becoming a writer. She learns early on the roles women and men play in society, as well as the emotional vulnerability of children. She sheds new light on a society that beholds the joys of marriage for men and condemns anything more than silence for women. In this world, too, black is a woman's color―worn when earned―daughters and daddies are strangers under the same roof, and crying children are often given something to cry about. hooks finds good company in solitude, good company in books. She also discovers, in the motionless body of misunderstanding, that writing is her most vital breath.

Precisely why we need platforms to continue to allow people to tell their own stories and narratives about their experiences and journeys and build #solidarity. Precisely why we need to break down imaginary boundaries to really know each other to find out our commonalities and celebrate our differences as the quilt of human life. Thank you @lsarsour for your continuous fight for #civilrights for all.

WAIT. A. MINUTE. Did anyone ACTUALLY THINK they were going to sit back and watch women of color lead and build a powerful intersectional movement and not try every tactic at their disposal to tear us down? Did anyone actually think that a Black woman from Harlem, a Palestinian-American woman from Brooklyn and a Chicana/Mexican woman from Oxnard weren’t going to be vilified, targeted, questioned and attacked? That our leadership would not be undermined and our labor erased? Folks, this is all in the history books. Playing out like it’s supposed to except we are here to be cycle breakers so future generations don’t have to go through what we are going through. I believe wholeheartedly that we were made especially for this - because what we have seen and experienced is beyond what ordinary individuals can withstand. 
I stay clear-eyed and focused and bell hooks centers me with her words in this moment, “Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.” Note: bell hooks uses lower case letters for her name. #WoCLead #womensmarch #shepersisted #bellhooks  #motivationalquotes #focus

bell hook's "all about love" is a life-changing book! It made me rethink my relationship(s), society and the western capitalist culture it was formed in. I think the ideas and perspectives hooks presents in "all about love" have the potential to transform anyone's life and society as a whole.

I will try and summarise some ideas that stuck with me, but be aware that there is NO WAY I could capture the plethora of thoughts presented let alone the beauty and genius of this book:

Contrary to speaking about love as a noun, love should be understood as a verb. Love does not just exist or happen magically, it must be practiced constantly. What I found particularly beautiful was bell's definition of love as the will to nurture one's own and another's spiritual growth. 
In the chapter that might have made the biggest impression on me, bell explains that honesty and communication are the basics of true love. Might sound obvious, but: "Patriarchial masculinity requires of boys and men not only that they see themselves as more powerful and superior to women but that they do whatever it takes to maintain their controlling position. This is one of the reasons men, more so than women, use lying as a means of gaining power in relationships. A commonly accepted assumption in a patriarchal culture is that love can be present in a situation where one group or individual dominates another. Many people believe men can dominate women and children yet still be loving." Another fascinating chapter was about greed. In it bell explains how our culture is centered on possession rather than love. Things matter more than people: "...we consume and consume with no thought of others. Greed and exploitation become the norm when an ethic of domination prevails." The opposite would be a public policy of generosity and charity, in which, contrary to individuals accumulating as much wealth as possible, resources would be SHARED to enable everyone to live decent lives. "Living simply makes loving simple". I strongly urge everyone to READ it!

"Ain't I woman?" - bell hooks⠀
⠀
Some days are challenging - finding the balance between what ought to be and what is for women in rural villages. However, WIL Uganda's message of strength and gender equality through education is reaching the women in the most remote villages surrounding Busembatia Town Council. ⠀

Dous novos textos sobre #feminismos lidos: "Monstruas y centauras" de Marta Sanz e "El feminismo es para todo el mundo" de bell hooks. Dous textos que acabaron todos subliñados e que me deixan claro que estou no camiño pero que a teoría feminista é moi rica e variada e absolutamente necesaria e moito me queda por ler/estudar/reformular/etc.
.
O luns tivemos a Rosa Cobo na @bibcoruna Os Rosales e deunos unha clase teórica fantástica para comprender o contexto das olas feministas, cando e porque xurden, cales son as vindicacións de cada unha e cales son os retos principais desta xa #cuartaolafeminista
.
Estamos ademáis xa de cheo na campaña de #GaliciaEnNegro #CoruñaEnNegro #EnNegroContraAsViolencias así que toda reflexión é pouca ✊🏼💜📚

*long post*

Before my seminar on critical pedagogy in the classroom, I asked my students to write notes about how my classes differ from other teachers. Most wrote about how fun my class is, others wrote about my amazing body (its not, but to each their own), some even wrote how difficult I can be to understand, but the one that stood out was from a young girl who had in the previous year avoided school often. She was in a club in which she always did really well, but in class she was often defeated, disengaged and uninterested. When I began challenging the Japanese system, by making the students more responsible for class, its pace, rhythm and content, I was worried that it would lapse into chaos. Sometimes it does but most of the time the students use English more eloquently and creatively than when we prepare the template or decide for them what to say. This young girl now writes beautiful entries in her journal to me, and wins most the games we play. Not only this but I watch her correct herself, and push forward through the hesitation without reassurance from myself or colleagues. Often, I have to take a step back before I develop material or take an action and ask, "is this just wish fulfilment? Or does it serve a purpose for my learners?" This note isn't about my ability as a teacher, but that children, all children, wherever they are, have the capacity for great learning and understanding if we, the teachers, allow it. Humanity and self should not be a privilege of the middle and upper class. Everyone deserves the right to question and criticise their world and make it work for them, rather than bringing children up to assimilate well into a world developed by our grandparents' or great grandparents' oppressors.

“Young people are cynical about love. Ultimately, cynicism is the great mask of the disappointed and betrayed heart”

A quote from the book “All About Love” by Bell Hooks which sparked an idea for my thesis. Also a book everyone should read because everyone needs some schooling on relationships and love.✨

I have loved men in many ways more than I loved myself. I used to take pride in being the rock, the refuge. To love a man so deeply it would transform him. Until I realized that I do not exist to mother a man I never birthed. •

Gloria Jean Watkins (Hopkinsville, 25 de setembro de 1952), mais conhecida pelo pseudônimo bell hooks, é uma autora, teórica feminista, artista e ativista socialestadunidense.
.

O nome "bell hooks" foi inspirado na sua bisavó materna, Bell Blair Hooks. A letra minúscula, que desafia convenções linguísticas e académicas, pretende dar enfoque ao conteúdo da sua escrita e não à sua pessoa. O seu objectivo, porém, não é ficar presa a uma identidade em particular mas estar em permanente movimento.
.

Watkins publicou mais de trinta livros e numerosos artigos acadêmicos, apareceu em vários filmes e documentários, e participou de várias palestras públicas. Sua obra incide principalmente sobre a interseccionalidade de raça, capitalismo e gênero, e aquilo que hooks descreve como a capacidade destes para produzir e perpetuar sistemas de opressão e dominação de classe. Numa perspectiva pós-moderna, e influenciada pela pedagogia crítica de Paulo Freire, o trabalho de hooks aborda raça, classe e gênero na educação, arte, história, sexualidade, mídia de massa, etc.

20 de novembro ~ dia da consciência negra. Aprendi muito com autoras negras como Bell Hooks e Angela Davis lendo esta publicação onde entrevistas transcritas mostram o relato de mulheres que atravessaram a história e viveram na pele o que a falta de consciência sobre classe, gênero e raça social podem nos causar. Ter consciência é saber sobre sua condição de privilégio, é conhecer a história pelo ponto de vista que não é só seu. Conheça a história lendo mulheres negras. 🌿

WAIT. A. MINUTE. Did anyone ACTUALLY THINK they were going to sit back and watch women of color lead and build a powerful intersectional movement and not try every tactic at their disposal to tear us down? Did anyone actually think that a Black woman from Harlem, a Palestinian-American woman from Brooklyn and a Chicana/Mexican woman from Oxnard weren’t going to be vilified, targeted, questioned and attacked? That our leadership would not be undermined and our labor erased? Folks, this is all in the history books. Playing out like it’s supposed to except we are here to be cycle breakers so future generations don’t have to go through what we are going through. I believe wholeheartedly that we were made especially for this - because what we have seen and experienced is beyond what ordinary individuals can withstand. 
I stay clear-eyed and focused and bell hooks centers me with her words in this moment, “Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.” Note: bell hooks uses lower case letters for her name. #WoCLead #womensmarch #shepersisted #bellhooks  #motivationalquotes #focus

"Quando nós, mulheres negras, experimentamos a força transformadora do amor em nossas vidas, assumimos atitudes capazes de alterar completamente as estruturas sociais existentes. Assim poderemos acumular forças para 
enfrentar o genocídio que mata diariamente tantos homens, mulheres e crianças negras. Quando conhecemos o amor, quando amamos, é possível enxergar o passado com outros olhos; é possível transformar o presente e sonhar o futuro. Esse é o poder do amor. 
O amor cura." .

Hoje é o dia da Consciência Negra no Brasil. Dia para lembrarmos que o racismo ainda é uma chaga aberta. Dia para refletirmos sobre os nossos privilégios. Sei que algumas pessoas preferem negar a existência do racismo e manter viva a teoria da democracia racial, mas enquanto negamos a sua existência, enquanto não falamos a respeito, ele vai continuar existindo. Convido você a fazer algumas reflexōes no dia de hoje: Quantas pessoas no seu trabalho são negras? Dentre as que são negras quantas ocupam cargos de gerência para cima? Quantos politicos negros nós temos? Quantos apresentadores de TV negros? Quantos protagonistas de novelas negros? Quantas capas de revistas com negros? Quantos médicos, advogados, juizes negros? "Nossa recuperação está no ato e na arte de amar" Bell Hooks .

3. La sorellanza ancora è potente

Quando lo slogan “La sorellanza è potente” venne usato per la prima volta, fu fantastico.(...)Nessuna di queste trasformazioni incredibili sarebbe avvenuta senza che il movimento femminista avesse creato la base per la solidarietà tra le donne. Questa base si è appoggiata sulla nostra critica a quello che allora chiamavamo “nemico interno”, riferendoci al nostro sessismo interiorizzato. Sapevamo, per esperienza diretta, che come donne, eravamo state abituate a socializzare attraverso il pensiero patriarcale per vederci inferiori agli uomini, per vederci, sempre e soltanto, in competizione le une con le altre per l’approvazione patriarcale, per guardarci con invidia, paura e odio. Il pensiero sessista ci ha fatto giudicare senza pietà e punire duramente le une alle altre. Il pensiero femminista ci ha aiutato a disimparare l’auto-odio femminile. Ci ha permesso di liberarci dal controllo del pensiero patriarcale sulle nostre coscienze. (…) Il legame tra donne non era possibile nel patriarcato; era un atto di tradimento. Movimenti femministi hanno creato le condizioni affinché le donne si connettessero. Non ci siamo unite contro gli uomini; ci siamo unite per proteggere i nostri interessi di donne. (…) Sfidare e cambiare il pensiero sessista delle donne era il primo passo per creare una sorellanza potente che avrebbe fatto oscillare la nostra nazione. 
Sulla scia dei diritti civili, il movimento femminista rivoluzionario degli anni 70-80 cambiò il volto della nostra nazione. Le attiviste femministe che resero questi cambiamenti possibili erano interessate al bene di tutte le donne. Intendevano che la solidarietà politica tra donne, espressa nella sorellanza, andava oltre il riconoscimento positivo delle esperienze di donne e anche della pietà condivisa nei casi di sofferenza comune. 
La sorellanza femminista si fonda nell’impegno condiviso di lottare contro l’ingiustizia patriarcale, non importa quale forma abbia l’ingiustizia. La solidarietà politica tra donne indebolisce sempre il sessismo e prepara la strada per distruggere il patriarcato. #bellhooks #sorellanza #power #feminism #is #for #everybody #sessismo #solidarieta

Queridas lectoras, aquí el post de debate II que corresponde a los capítulos 6-10. 
Estas son las citas que he seleccionado de cada capítulo. Me encantaría conocer cuáles son las citas o fragmentos que más os están impactando. A mí, en concreto, lo que más interés me está generando son las reflexiones en torno al olvido del debate sobre la clase en el feminismo. Aquí la visión de una hormiguita obrera se cuela siempre en la lectura. ¡Contadme!

Este ano, cerca de 250 pessoas participaram do curso sobre Psicologia Preta que tenho ministrado. O vídeo em que faço a leitura do texto que é fio condutor do curso teve mais de 50 mil visualizações. Semana passada, em Salvador, quando abri para perguntas e conversas com os participantes, uma senhora disse que estava sendo muito importante me ver chorar enquanto eu falava sobre como curar a negritude dos efeitos do racismo. "Te ver chorar me autoriza a chorar quando estiver tratando dessas questões com meus alunos". Chorar junto com os irmãos e irmãs que vão ao curso é, para mim, parte essencial do ritual de cura que o minicurso se propõe a ser. Entramos em contato com a dor e com a força de ser negro e negra num país como o Brasil. Passamos três horas juntos numa partilha coletiva da nossa pulsão palmarina, nosso desejo de sermos africanos e livres. Estratégias de lutas são desenvolvidas no e a partir do minicurso, bem como todos saem diferentes da maneira como entraram. É visível, além dos próprios participantes me dizerem em palavras, é visível os reposicionamentos diante da questão racial que o curso ajuda a forjar. Estou dizendo isso hoje para dizer que chorar junto é um caminho de cura importante. Podermos desabar e termos uns aos outros como sustento emocional é promoção de saúde mental. Chorar junto, sorrir junto, acessar os afetos que estão compondo tal ou qual singularidade tem sido uma prática fortalecedora nos processos de aquilombamento em que faço parte. Esse choro é um choro com o qual Audre Lorde nos ensina a fazermos usos da raiva. É um choro a partir do qual Bell Hooks nos convida a vivermos de amor. Raiva e amor são afetos importantíssimos na luta cotidiana de ser negro e negra no Brasil. Raiva para devolver a esse mundo branco e racista aquilo que historicamente ele projeta sobre nós. Amor para nos acolhermos, nos preservarmos, nos curarmos. "É muito bom te ver chorar", ela disse. É muito bom chorar entre irmãos, desabar, se levantar e seguir com uma força ainda maior que antes. #novembronegro #blacknovember #blackpsychology #psicologiapreta #bellhooks #audrelorde #lucasveiga

This is my odd system for taking notes as I read—jotting down key ideas of each chapter to create an annotated TOC. Of course, it is a challenge to read my own handwriting. The circled squiggles in the last image say “reinscribing class hierarchy.” 😬 Also everyone should read #bellhooks.

“Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” ~Bell Hooks

Sometimes we need a reminder of just how precious and important our health, as #BlackWomen, truly is. Today's #MondayMotivation comes from #BellHooks. Are you paying as close attention to your health as you should be? #BWHI #MondayMood

“ Gloria Jean Watkins (Hopkinsville, 25 de setembro de 1952), mais conhecida pelo pseudônimo bell hooks, é uma autora, teórica feminista, artista e ativista socialestadunidense.
.

O nome "bell hooks" foi inspirado na sua bisavó materna, Bell Blair Hooks. A letra minúscula, que desafia convenções linguísticas e académicas, pretende dar enfoque ao conteúdo da sua escrita e não à sua pessoa. O seu objectivo, porém, não é ficar presa a uma identidade em particular mas estar em permanente movimento.
.

Watkins publicou mais de trinta livros e numerosos artigos acadêmicos, apareceu em vários filmes e documentários, e participou de várias palestras públicas. Sua obra incide principalmente sobre a interseccionalidade de raça, capitalismo e gênero, e aquilo que hooks descreve como a capacidade destes para produzir e perpetuar sistemas de opressão e dominação de classe. Numa perspectiva pós-moderna, e influenciada pela pedagogia crítica de Paulo Freire, o trabalho de hooks aborda raça, classe e gênero na educação, arte, história, sexualidade, mídia de massa, etc.

“We refuse to know each other, in pain there is also the possibility of connection. It is easy to dominate that which you see and never know. To want to know is to transgress. Knowing my body and its limits, I am able to sacrifice belonging. If the fear of death is all that keeps us away from one another, than I willingly embrace death to reach you, to stand by your side. If you see me dying than you too are a witness. You have crossed the boundary.” - - - bell hooks / being the subject of art / 🥬🍉🍒🍑🍅🥝🥕 #illustration #bellhooks

I’m reading #allaboutlove by #bellhooks and it’s absolutely amazing, full of wisdom about how to give and receive love and the barriers to love that we face today. -

Honestly, I haven’t been feeling that great about myself recently, I’ve found I’ve been very critical of myself and constantly questioning, my thoughts, feelings and actions just questioning whether I’m justified in what I’m saying or feeling or telling myself when I’m speaking that nobody cares or nobody’s listening. I’m trying so hard to silence that little voice but I just can’t seem to get past it. I’m praying for the courage and strength to believe in myself more, I’ve made a little #pdp #personaldevelopment plan which I’ll remind myself of as well. I’ll be taking a solo trip to Manchester for a few days as well to remind myself of my independence and that I enjoy my own company and I’m okay on my own. I realise this has nothing to do with the quote but, just wanted to say!

Arrancando lectura nueva en esta tarde de domingo.
Se trata del libro 'El feminismo es para todo el mundo ' de bell hooks que recomendó en su cuenta @gemabgema así que siguiendo la línea de Despentes , me dispuse a leerlo. 
Como no lo encontré en formato papel, le agradezco a una colega que me lo facilitó digitalmente. 
Y de paso sigo participando de la maratón de lectura propuesta por @entreletrasypapel.
