    • Society & Culture

bell hooks left us in this world with a literal STACK of wisdom and analysis about love, life, and feminism. Her work has transformed the thinking of many people we know in our organizing community. We couldn’t think of a better way to honor bell hooks’ legacy than starting off a new season with this virtual interview with Stacy Davis Gates, Vice President of the Chicago Teachers Union.

Stacy shares the stories of her personal transformation and political awakening after reading bell hooks' Ain’t I A Woman: Black Women and Feminism. Monica and Page chat with Stacy about her struggles and lessons learned from finding affirmation through bell hooks' words to applying this information to her lifelong journey as a Black woman in building community power in coalition with Black men and non-Black people.

We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
bell, we thank you for everything. Ashe.
