Bell Hooks ☆ 9 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Í Sisters of the Yam Black Women and Self Recovery South End Press Classics Edition South End Press Classics Series SUMMARY È E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Bell Hooks Bell Hooks ☆ 9 SUMMARY When Sisters of the Yam Black Women and Self Recovery was originally released in 1994 it won critical praise and solidified bell hooks’ reputation as one of the leading public intellectuals of her generation Today the book is considered a classic in African American and feminist circlesIn Sisters of the Yam hooks examines how the emotional health of black women is wounded by daily assaults of racism and sexism Exploring such central life issues as work beauty trauma addiction eroticism and estrangement. I am a huge fan of this woman I find so much healing and understanding in her words I admire her candidness in acknowledging issues that are often just swept under the rug She is one of the first academics I came across who considers the black experience in fields that often take the human condition as a homogeneous one I feel so many black women would appreciate this book so much Alongside Alice Walker s books this is a good companion for black women s self actualization and the realization that we have to heal and continue the struggle as wellHer book was written in 1993 so a few points are a bit dated and obsolete but it is still greatSome uotes Such wounds do not manifest themselves only in material ways they effect our psychological well being Black people are wounded in our hearts minds bodies and spiritsEverywhere black women live in the world we eat yam It is a symbol of our diasporic connections Yams provide nourishment for the body as food yet they are also used medicinally to heal the bodyCollective healingTraditional therapy mainstream psychoanalytical practices often do not consider race an important issue and as a result do not adeuately address the mental health dilemmas of black people
